This course is intended for those who have achieved some skill in techniques of specimen preparation, and wish to extend their ability to interpret metallographic structures and relate structures to service performance. It deals with the principles upon which interpretation is based and is presented in a lecture-based format well-illustrated by microstructures of a wide variety of materials and treatments. Students are strongly encouraged to bring samples to class.
ASM Handbook Volume 9 is included when taking this course.
- Correlate microstructures with properties of metals
- Interpret microstructures for quality performance
- The role of metallography in failure analysis
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
- Maintain high quality standards during processing of materials and alloys
- Classify various formed metal parts such as castings, forgings, weldments, powder metallurgy
- Provide production assurance for performance in specified applications
- Perform failure analyses and recommend changes to prevent future failures
- Assist in research and development of new materials and processing
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
SUGGESTED PREREQUISITE COURSES:
- Elements of Metallurgy
- Principles of Metallography
- Metallographic Techniques
IACET CEU's will be awarded for successful completion of the course requirements.
Continuing Education Units: 3.0
1. Review of crystal structures, phase rule and equilibrium phase diagrams and their relationships with formation of various phases
2. Detail discussion of time-temperature - transformation diagrams
3. Application of quantitative metallographic techniques in characterizing steels
4. Hardness and other tests for estimation of performance characteristics
5. Cold work recovery, recrystallization and grain growth in a variety of alloy systems
6. Correlation of observed microstructures with thermo-mechanical history of the parts
7. Identification of effects of microstructural changes by heat treatment on mechanical and physical properties
8. Several case histories demonstrating use of metallography in failure analysis
George Vander Voort, FASM received his BS in Metallurgical Engineering from Drexel in 1967 - the last class as Drexel Institute of Technology and received their Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2005. At Drexel he was twice editor-in-chief of the Drexel Technical Journal, including the three years in a row when it was named the number one college technical journal by the Engineering Colleges Magazines Association. He was a member of Blue Key National Honorary Leadership Society and in 1967 he was listed in Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity named him their outstanding senior in 1967. After graduation, George joined Bethlehem Steel Corporation in Bethlehem, PA. He received an MS degree in Metallurgy and Materials Science from Lehigh University in 1974. After six years in the Bethlehem Plant metallurgy department he was transferred to the Homer Research Laboratories as a research engineer; nine years followed in the Metallurgical Service and Investigations group with involvement in all areas of microscopy, failure analysis work and alloy development. In 1983, George joined Carpenter Technology Corporation as supervisor of Metal Physics Research in their research center. He was responsible for all areas of microscopy and mechanical testing. From 1996 to 2009, George worked at Buehler Ltd. as Director of Research and Technology. He edited their newsletter, Tech-Notes, produced their annual microstructure calendar and was responsible for education, laboratory service, and new directions, e.g., EBSD and SEM imaging. In 2010, George became a consultant to Struers Inc, Struers A/S, Latrobe Steel and Scot Forge, plus president of Vander Voort Consulting L.L.C.
