Principles of Failure Analysis, March 27-30, 2017

March 27, 2017 - March 02, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Ronald J. Parrington, P.E., FASM

This course will provide you with the knowledge to bridge the gap between theory and practice of failure analysis. It provides you with a practical approach to failure analysis for those who are new to the field or those who want an update. It is also designed for technicians with the prerequisites and those interested in understanding how knowledge of failure analysis can lead to better productivity. Causes of fractures are explained with diagrams of stress application and distribution. Many case histories of failures and their elimination are highlighted throughout the course.

Reverse Engineering: A Material Perspective, March 27-29, 2017

March 27, 2017 - March 29, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Wego Wang, Sc.D.

This course focuses on the application of modern technologies used to reinvent the design details and manufacturing processes of an existing part in the absence of original design data. These technologies have been widely used in the aviation, automotive and other industries to supply the aftermarket products worth billions of dollars annually. It first introduces reverse engineering from both engineering development and legal ratifiction perspectives. It emphasizes the real-life practice of reverse engineering in the industry from a material perspective with hands-on testing and laboratory demonstration. The course content covers material characterization and identification, material process verification, laboratory testing and demonstration, data process and analysis, metrological analysis and functional performance. The book, Reverse Engineering: Technology of Reinvention, by Wego Wang, is provided with the course.

Mechanical Testing of Metals, April 3-6, 2017

April 03, 2017 - April 06, 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.

Practical Fracture Mechanics, April 3-4, 2017

April 03, 2017 - April 04, 2017
Lansing, NY, 14882, USA
Instructor: Dr. John Landes, PhD

This course provides a practical understanding of fracture mechanics principles through a combination of lecture and problem solving activities. Design and failure analysis for monotonic and cyclic loaded components will be covered. Take away a new understanding of topics such as fracture toughness testing, ductile fracture testing, stress corrosion cracking and fatigue failure. Linear and non-linear fracture mechanic concepts and methods appropriate for a given loading or failure mode will be applied to make sense of this sometimes confusing discipline.

Metallurgy of Welding and Joining, April 3-6, 2017

April 03, 2017 - April 06, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Robert W. Messler, Jr., PhD, FASM

Welding metallurgy is a complex subject because it requires knowledge of materials, welding processes, design, and inspection. This course provides an excellent review of welding processes, welding of materials ranging from carbon steel to specialized alloys, guidelines for designing weldments to facilitate welding, and testing and inspecting welds to meet performance requirements.

Practical Fractography, April 5-6, 2017

April 05, 2017 - April 06, 2017
Lansing, NY, 14882, USA
Instructor: Mr. Dave Christie

This course provides a practical understanding of fractography through a combination of lecture and hands on experience. Theory and examples presented in the lectures are reinforced by macro and micro examination of failed parts in the lab. Visual examination as well as stereo microscopy and scanning electron microscopy will be utilized to interpret example fractures. Improve your skills in this vital portion of most failure examinations.

Heat Treatment, Microstructures and Performance of Carbon and Steel Alloys, April 10-12, 2017

April 10, 2017 - April 12, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Dana Medlin

Heat treated bar and forging steels remain the major material for parts (such as shafts, gears, bearing, fasteners, oil country tubulars, aircraft landing gear, tools of all sorts, and many other applications) manufactured for demanding applications that require high or ultra-high strength, high fatigue resistance, and /or high wear resistance, all combined with good levels of toughness and fracture resistance. This course reviews the phases that form in carbon and alloy steels and the modifications produced in the iron-carbon diagram by alloying and manufacture. Microstructures and the phase transformations by which they are produced in all phases of manufacture, from casting through quench and tempering, will be described and related to mechanical properties and performance, including fracture and potential embrittlement phenomena. All students will receive a copy of the book Steels: Processing, Structure, and Performance written by George Krauss and first published by ASM in 2005.

Corrosion, April 24-27, 2017

April 24, 2017 - April 27, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Thomas K. (Tom) Glasgow, FASM,

Corrosion occurs in all industries from automotive and aerospace to infrastructure, construction, petroleum, power, paper making, food processing, bioengineering, and pharmaceuticals. Corrosion is costly, dangerous, wasteful, and unsightly. It can be predicted, controlled, and even avoided. This class presents an overview of the eight major corrosion processes and related corrosion monitoring, prediction and control mechanisms. The principles discussed are applicable to all metals. Emphasis is on practical applications of corrosion technology to industrial corrosion problems.
