Metallurgy for Non Metallurgists - NSW Branch Webinar

Metallurgy for Non Metallurgists - NSW Branch Webinar

Date: 13-Aug-2020

Details

12-14 August 2020 | 12.30 pm - 5.00 pm

Metals and alloys are used in the greatest variety of applications of all engineering materials. As such it is essential for those involved in manufacturing, engineering and construction to have an understanding of what metals (ferrous and non-ferrous) are, how they behave, and why they behave differently than ceramics, glass, and plastics. It is also important to understand how they can be made stronger, how they can be shaped by casting, forging, forming, and how these processes along with heat treatment can alter properties. This course provides important basic knowledge to those who are not metallurgists.

All attendees will receive printed lessons developed by ASM.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • Metal Processing Personnel
  • Engineers who need to gain a better understanding of metals and alloys.
  • QA Managers
  • Heat Treating Operators & Managers
  • Component Designers
  • Technicians
  • Marketing, Technical Writers, Purchasers and individuals without a materials background who wish to better understand the role of materials science

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe how metals and alloys are formed and why
  • Recognise how metals can be strengthened by alloying, cold-working, and heat treatment
  • Determine why metals and alloys are not behaving as expected and can be made to behave as needed
  • Choose what metal or alloy to use for its specific combinations of properties

TOPICS

Topics may include:

  • Introduction to Metals and Alloys
  • Solidification of Metals
  • Metal Forming
  • Mechanical Properties
  • Strengthening Mechanisms
  • Heat Treatment
  • Strengthening Steels & Cast Iron
  • Materials Characterization and Selection
  • Failure Analysis
