Phase constitution and the dispersion of various phases in solids decisively influence the properties of materials. Size, size distribution of various phases in solids can be tailored by understanding and optimizing the solid state phase transformations in solids. Phase transformation can be influenced by coupling the heat treatment either by introduction of mechanical energy into solids or by altering the chemistry of solids. Accordingly several Thermo Mechanical and Thermo Chemical processes treatments have been developed by the researchers. This course is designed to provide the fundamental science behind these processes so that optimal utilization of these processes is possible. Course will cover the utilization of flow stress data from hot deformation experiments to develop constitutive equations and processing maps, the interrelationship between microstructure and deformation features with the thermo-mechanical deformation processes. Important thermo chemical processes such as nitriding, carburizing, carbonitriding, nitrocarburizing and boriding will be covered.
Dr. Vivek Pancholi obtained BE (Industrial and Production Engg.) in 1995 from G.S.I.T.S. Indore, M.Tech. (Industrial Tribology) from IIT Delhi in 1997 and PhD in Metallurgical Engineering from IIT Bombay, in 2005. He joined IIT Roorkee as a faculty member in the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering in 2006. He has about 10 years teaching experience at IIT Roorkee. He taught UG core courses like Structural Metallurgy, Phase transformation and Heat treatment, Welding and Casting and, Mechanical Behavior of Materials. He also taught M.Tech. core course on Materials Characterization.. He has published more than 35 research papers in SCI/SCIE indexed journals and completed 05 sponsored research projects. Under his guidance four PhD research scholars completed their thesis and five are working.
