The module Materials testing methods 2 shall enable that students learn about phenomena and principles of operation and design of research instruments, which are applied in measuring techniques and methods used to characterise the structure and basic properties of engineering materials. Owing to that students shall master operation of scientific-research instruments and acquire the skill to interpret measurement results. The understanding of phenomena and principles of operation shall result in a skilful application of an appropriate testing technique to assess materials properties. Students shall master basic definitions of material quantities, the idea of material equations and general rules used in measuring techniques. They will learn selected methods illustrating the general approach and results obtained using these method
