Control metal properties
For any component or joint we want to select materials that have specific metal properties and we want to use manufacturing processes that are capable of transforming a material into the desired shape with the desired properties.
This lesson teaches the relationship between the properties of a metal and its composition, microstructure and the manufacturing processes used to form components and joints. Obtaining the desired properties in a metal requires understanding these factors and their interactions.
The concepts and information presented in this lesson applies to all metals.
