Fundamentals in natural sciences and materials science of metals, ceramics and polymers are covered in this lecture. The correlation between physical properties and the usage (e.g. strength, ductility, corrosion resistance...) and manufacturing properties (e.g. weldability, deformability...) are shown. In the second part of the lecture, the system Fe-C is discussed in more detail, important and common cast irons, steels, and their heat treatments are presented. For Fe-based materials, a full classification of fundamentals, properties and applications is covered.
