Metals engineering is the application of metallurgy (the science of metals) to design and manufacturing decisions and problems involving metals. In this Metal Conversations episode I explain the fundamental principles of metallurgy and how they are applied to engineer metals for component design and solving component failures and production quality problems.

Here's a link to the episode. The episode is twelve minutes long

In this Metal Conversations episode I discuss two lessons I learned when I was a process engineer in a semiconductor fab. One lesson was a real-life example of the effects of manufacturing processes on metal microstructure and the resulting effects on a metal property that was used to monitor a manufacturing process. The other lesson was about the fallacy of engineering or scientific ingenuity. The podcast is seven minutes long.

I just posted my second podcast episode. In this episode I discussed my education, my experience working in a semiconductor factory and as part of a product design group, and the many different product design and manufacturing activities I was involved in as a metals engineer.

I'm still trying to feel my way through this podcasting business - producing it and coming up with topics. I hired someone to help with the audio editing. That saved a lot of time. Future episodes will contain more engineering content.

I recently started a podcast about metallurgy and metals engineering. It's called Metal Conversations and is available on Spotify, Apple podcasts , Amazon Music, and Pocket Casts. The links go to the podcast. Go ahead and subscribe to the podcast.

I'll talk about metallurgy and metals engineering as they apply to product design and manufacturing. This covers many different areas including alloy selection, component fabrication, reliability and product verification testing, manufacturing process development, and fixing quality problems, just to name a few.

I also plan on interviewing people involved with these different areas.

I hope you'll listen and that it'll be helpful when you're dealing with metal decisions. Send your feedback and requests for topics I should cover.
