Principles of Metallurgy and Component Design

May 11, 8:00 – 9:30 a.m. central time

Understanding physical metallurgy is important for component design and for solving product failures and quality problems. This webinar covers fundamental aspects of physical metallurgy as it relates to obtaining desired metal properties and considerations for alloy selection during component design.

The topics that will be covered include:

  • Microscopic structures present in metals
  • How metal microstructure and alloy composition influence metal strength
  • How alloying, cold working, and heat treating are used to modify metal microstructure to obtain specific mechanical properties.
  • Design considerations when selecting a metal alloy for a component.

 

Carbon Steel Metallurgy

May 12, 8:00 – 9:30 a.m. central time

Steel alloy composition and microscopic structure have huge effects on steel properties. And heat treating has a huge effect on a steel’s microscopic structure. So, when selecting an alloy for component, understanding the heat treatment required to get the desired microstructure can make the difference between a successful design and a problematic design.

In this webinar you will learn about commonly used steel alloys, steel microstructures present in commonly used steels, and steel heat treatments used to modify steel microstructure and properties.

The topics that will be covered include:

  • Common carbon and low-alloy steels and their designations
  • Steel microscopic structures and their effects on steel strength and hardness
  • Common steel heat treatments and their effects on steel microstructure and properties
  • Effects of alloy composition on steel properties

 

Carbon Steel Alloy Selection for Component Design

May 14, 8:00 – 9:30 a.m. central time

This webinar covers considerations for selecting steel alloys for components. Case studies will give attendees opportunities to apply their carbon steel metallurgy knowledge.

 

Failure Analysis of Metal Fractures

May 15, 8:00 – 9:30 a.m. central time

It’s important to determine the root cause of components failures during testing or use. But, many people struggle with the steps to take to get the information they need. This webinar covers the steps of a metallurgical failure analysis, the equipment used, the data obtained, and how to use the results to determine the root cause of metal cracking and fracture failures.

You’ll learn how to get to the bottom of failures faster by understanding how to work with metallurgical labs on a failure analysis, how to better participate in a failure analysis, and help you better understand failure analysis reports. You’ll gain confidence about what to do when a problem occurs.

Topics that will be covered include

  • The steps of a metallurgical failure analysis, the equipment used, and the data obtained.
  • Common failure mechanisms associated with cracks and fractures.
  • How failure analysis data is used to determine the fracture mechanism and root cause of cracking and fracture failures.

Several real-life failures will be used as examples and case studies.
