Carbon Steel Metallurgy - Online Metallurgy Training

Steel Metallurgy

If you work with carbon and low-alloy steels and need to understand how to solve problems when they don’t meet your requirements, then this webinar is for you.

Watch this video of a past webinar to learn about the metallurgy of carbon and low-alloy steel. You will learn about commonly available steel alloys, fundamental microscopic structures that influence steel properties, and the relationships between steel composition, microstructure, and strength and hardness. Understanding these concepts is critical to get the strength and hardness you need in steel components.

You will have 14 days access to the webinar recording. A pdf file of the presentation slides is available for download.

What you will learn

  • Different types of plain carbon and low-alloy carbon steel alloys and their designations.
  • Microscopic structures in steel that influence steel strength and hardness, and how these structures are modified by carbon content and heat treating.
  • Effects of carbon content on steel strength and hardness.
  • Brief explanations of common heat treatments and their effects on steel microstructure and properties.

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.
