Heat Treatment, Microstructures and Performance of Carbon and Steel Alloys, July 31 - August 2, 2017

July 31, 2017 - August 02, 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 will review 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.

Aluminum and Its Alloys, August 1-3, 2017

August 01, 2017 - August 03, 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.

Steel Metallography August 7-10, 2017

August 07, 2017 - August 10, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Laura Moyer

The ability to understand and control microstructure and properties in steels is critical for many industries and applications.This course deals specifically with the metallographic preparation of steels to reveal the microstructure accurately and provides a unique perspective and understanding for interpretation of steel microstructures. The class works as a team to build a reference notebook of steel microstructures and will perform heat treatment, metallography, hardness, and micro-hardness testing. The class will learn to determine prior austenitic grain size, and understand the effect of cooling rate on the resulting microstructure; learn how to identify Austenite, Ferrite, Pearlite, Bainite (upper and lower), and Martensite (lath and plate), and understand the formation and growth of these microstructures. The course includes video shot using a hot stage microscope at Lehigh University that shows several phase transformations common to steels in real time

Fractography, August 14-17, 2017

August 14, 2017 - August 17, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Ashok Choudhury, Ph.D., CLP

This course is designed for a broad cross-section of failure analysis practitioners. Failure analysis principles, tools and mechanisms are covered in detail. In addition, the practical aspects and importance of considering the failed part, the material of construction and the failure circumstances in combination is stressed. Emphasis is placed on learning the macroscopic failure modes and correlation of these observations with microscopic fracture surface features. The salient points are illustrated with case histories. Course attendees are also encouraged to bring case histories to share in an interactive manner.

Magnesium- Science, Technology and Applications, August 14-15, 2017

August 14, 2017 - August 15, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Francis H. (Sam) Froes PhD

Magnesium is the lightest structural metal used today and the third most abundant metal in the earth's crust. Magnesium alloys are in use around the world in a variety of different applications, both structurally and non-structurally. An emerging interest in magnesium alloys for automotive and aerospace applications is based on the combination of high strength properties and low density. This course provides an overview of the science, technology and applications of magnesium and its alloys starting with the initial discovery of magnesium and tracing the development and applications up to the present day. This is an ideal course for someone who will be actively working with the many diverse aspects of magnesium technology.

Introduction to Metallurgical Lab Practices, August 28-30, 2017

August 28, 2017 - August 30, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. John Peppler

Basic techniques commonly used in a Metallurgical Laboratory will be taught in this class. You will become familiar with metallography by sectioning, mounting, grinding, polishing and etching samples. These samples will be examined and photomicrographs obtained by using optical microscopes equipped with digital cameras. Various Microhardness and Macrohardness equipment will be used to demonstrate the strengths and limitations of the tests. Tensile Testing and Impact Testing will be performed on standard samples. Basic principles and sample demonstration on the use of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) will be covered. Hands on testing complimented by lectures on the basics of the tests will give a thorough overview of these procedures. This is the course you need if you learn by doing and could use an overview of Metallographic Lab procedures.
