Aluminum Metallurgy for Designers - Industrial Metallurgists

Aluminum Metallurgy for Designers

There are a wide variety of wrought aluminum alloys, each capable of being processed in different ways in order to obtain specific properties.  For many applications where aluminum is used, two primary properties of interest are strength and weight, and getting the strength needed requires understanding the metallurgical factors that affect aluminum strength.

During this webinar you will learn about the metallurgy of wrought aluminum alloys.  This includes the metallurgical factors that influence wrought aluminum strength and how alloy composition, cold working, and heat treating are used to obtain specific strength.

The knowledge you’ll gain will enable you to make better alloy selection decisions, have more meaningful discussions with suppliers, and solve quality problems faster.
