Aluminum and Its Alloys, October 3-5, 2017

October 03, 2017 - October 05, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Kevin Anderson PhD, FASM

Aluminum is a widely used metal that is playing an increasingly dominant role in the green economy. Aluminum's high strength to weight ratio, low cost, recycle ability, and other positive attributes are some of the reasons that aluminum is being adopted as a material of choice by weight conscious component engineers. This class uses hundreds of hands - on, real - world aluminum components and metallurgical samples to illustrate concepts in the text. Aluminum literature is also provided as a valuable resource for people working with aluminum and aluminum alloy products. Students are encouraged to bring questions and their real-world problems to class for discussion and resolution. This is the ideal class for someone who will be actively working with the many diverse aspects of aluminum technology.

Metallurgy of Steel for the Non Metallurgist, October 16-18, 2017

October 16, 2017 - October 18, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Thomas K. (Tom) Glasgow, FASM

Steel is, technologically and economically, the most important of all materials. Understanding the metallurgy involved in making steel, in shaping it by hot or cold processes, in welding it, and in heat-treating it to develop any of the extraordinarily diverse combinations of strength, hardness, toughness, and ductility available is essential to successful manufacturing and construction. This course teaches the basics and delves into some of the more advanced topics critical to steel fabrication.

Mechanical Testing of Metals, October 16-19, 2017

October 16, 2017 - October 19, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. William L. Mankins, FASM

This is a hands-on introduction to standard mechanical testing and the properties derived from those tests, together with a discussion of testing philosophy to determine suitability for service and suitability for manufacture. Standardized testing procedures (ASTM, SAE, AWWA, etc.) are discussed, including limitations of a test, why specific requirements are present in the test procedure, and interpretation of experimental results. There is discussion of how metallurgical variables can affect test results, and how microstructure can affect selection of a given testing procedure. (For example, hardness testing of wrought vs. cast material.) This course is taught at a level that requires some algebraic manipulation as well as the use of logarithms. Students are required to bring a scientific calculator.

Nitinol for Medical Devices, October 23-25, 2017

October 23, 2017 - October 25, 2017
Santa Clara, CA, 92610, USA
Instructor: Dr. Alan R. Pelton, Ph.D.

The unique properties of the shape memory alloy Nitinol have led to many transformational medical device innovations, including self-expanding stents, percutaneously delivered heart valves, kink resistant guide wires, and self-locking orthopedic devices. Its super elastic qualities allow the alloy to withstand large amounts of recoverable strain, and its potential for excellent bio compatibility and fatigue resistance make it the material of choice for some of the most demanding medical device applications. However, Nitinol's unique properties are very dependent upon alloy composition and processing. In this course, you will learn the variables that affect Nitinol's properties, how to control them, and how its unique properties can be applied in medical devices. Hands on in the lab is included.
