If your products use precipitation strengthening alloys (also called precipitation hardening alloys), you need to understand the metallurgical and heat treating factors that affect alloy strength and hardness and how heat treating should be controlled to obtain the desired mechanical properties.
With knowledge of the metallurgical aspects of precipitation strengthening heat treating you’ll be better able to
Select the most appropriate alloy and heat treating process for your application
Develop manufacturing processes
Solve quality problems
What you'll learn about precipitation strengthening
The following aspects of precipitation strengthening are taught in this course:
How precipitation strengthens an alloy.
Heat treating process steps for precipitation strengthening an alloy and the microstructure changes that occur during each step.
The microstructure changes that occur during precipitation strengthening heat treating
The effects of heat treating process conditions on alloy microstructure and strength
Heat treating process parameters and their effects on alloy microstructure and strength.
The course takes about 3 hours to complete and consists of 5 modules and a final exam. Each module is 20-30 minutes long. Also, quizzes and problems give you opportunities to apply the concepts taught. The module titles are:
Module 1: Introduction
Module 2: Phase diagrams
Module 3: Precipitation strengthening
Module 4: Heat treatment details
Module 5: Course review
