Carbon Steel Metallurgy for Design Engineers - Industrial Metallurgists

Carbon Steel Metallurgy for Design Engineers

Understanding steel metallurgy is critical to design steel components that meet performance and reliability requirements at low cost.

Steel strength, hardness, ease of component fabrication, and other properties depend on several metallurgical factors. These metallurgical factors can be engineered to get the desired properties for a component.

During this webinar you will learn about the effects of steel alloy composition and steel microstructure on carbon steel strength and hardness and how microstructure is modified by alloy composition, cold working, and heat treating in order to obtain specific strength and hardness. Understanding these concepts is important for component design and productive conversations with component suppliers, heat treaters, and metallurgical labs.

Topics covered

  • Commonly available carbon and low-alloy steels and their alloy 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

A pdf document of the webinar slides will be emailed to webinar registrants 1-2 days before the webinar. You will also have 7-day access to a recording of the webinar.
