There are microscopic structures and processes in metals that have large effects on metal properties, performance, and reliability. Being able to conceptualize these structures and processes goes a long way toward understanding the behavior of metals and the effects of mechanical processing and heat treating on metal properties. In this episode I discuss some of the microscopic structures and their effects on metal properties.
I also discuss recent projects and a bonus at the end - some details about my recent trip to Seward, Alaska
Here's a link to the episode. The episode is about 20 minutes long. (Apologies up front - I recorded this episode using the wrong microphone. So, the sound quality is fair. I'll do better next time.)
