Carbon 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.

"A group of us took several courses (Principles of Metallurgy, Metallurgy of Steel, Corrosion of Metals) to become more knowledgeable about the science of metals to avoid problems. For me, the biggest impact of the training was on working with suppliers. I feel more confident asking questions and I now know the suppliers which know their stuff and which ones don’t. And it was great being able to get the training when it was convenient for me."Sam Bloodgood, VP Process Improvement, Hydraforce, Inc.
"I oversee several operations, including steel heat treating and laser welding. However, my background was in the construction materials industry. Principles of Metallurgy gave me the knowledge to have meaningful discussions with my engineers and be able to ask them better questions."Tom Parkman, Plant Manager, Simonds International.
“Principles of Metallurgy exceeded my expectations. The content was straightforward enough not to be burdensome, yet deep enough to provide a practical review of fundamental principles. I recommend this course to any engineer or technical person who has been out of school and working in industry for several years, but not necessarily having been focused on metallurgy.”Andy Jacobs, Staff Engineer, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc.
“The Principles of Metallurgy course is broke up into convenient length modules that can be fit into the busiest schedule. The course is a good review for engineers who had a materials class ten or more years ago.”Paul Flury B/E Aerospace
“This is an excellent course (Metallurgy of Steel Heat Treating) for learning basic heat treating practices. The course introduces and covers a broad range of processes. I would recommend it for anyone in the steel business.”Jim Marks, Magellan Corporation
“This course has given me more confidence in my job and given me a better understanding of some of the heat treatments used in the business.”Mark Winter, Abbey Forged Products
