Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgistâ„¢, March 6-7, 2017

March 06, 2017 - March 07, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Robert B. Pond, Jr. FASM

Metals and alloys are used in the greatest variety of applications of all engineering materials. As such it is essential for those involved in manufacturing, engineering and construction to have an understanding of metals and alloys, how these behave, and how the science of metals informs the technology of metals and alloys. It is also important to understand how metals are made stronger, more corrosion resistant, how they are shaped by casting, forging, forming, machining, or welding, and how manufacturing processes can alter properties. The course provides this important knowledge in an accessible form for those who are not metallurgists.

Practical Interpretation of Microstructures, March 6-9, 2017

March 06, 2017 - March 09, 2017
2376 E. Pacifica Pl. Compton, CA, 90220, USA
Instructor: Ms. Frauke Hogue FASM

This "Hands-On" course presents information on microstructures, heat treatment and use of each group of alloys. You will be able to view actual structures on a projection screen.The features of the structures are pointed out and discussed. You will then examine the over 200 mounts at their microscope stations and compare them with an illustrated and annotated notebook of the structures. There are no required prerequisites, but the basic knowledge of sample preparation, heat treating or metallurgy will enhance the understanding of the presented material. You are encouraged to bring prepared metallographic specimens to the class for discussion.

Titanium and Its Alloys, March 6-9, 2017

March 06, 2017 - March 09, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Francis H. (Sam) Froes PhD

Titanium and its alloys are a versatile family of metals with applications in many industries. They have high modulus and strength-to-weight ratios, excellent corrosion resistance, and superior bio-compatibility. This unique combination of physical, mechanical, and chemical properties make them attractive for aerospace, marine, industrial, and biomedical applications. This course provides an overview of the rapidly growing titanium industry.

Introduction to Thermal Spray, March 13-14, 2017

March 13, 2017 - March 14, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Richard A. Sayman

Thermal spraying has evolved from a technology designed to be a cost effective method of repairing worn components and machined parts to a process used to provide improved part performance and add longer life to components. As the thermal spray profession has changed, so has the need to ensure safe and consistent methods for thermal spray operators. ASM International brought together the leaders in the Thermal Spray Society to compile their knowledge and experience in a comprehensive, easy to understand course.

Metallographic Techniques, March 20-23, 2017

March 20, 2017 - March 23, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Laura Moyer

You will prepare a variety of, hard, soft, ferrous and non ferrous alloys under the guidance of the instructor. Manual preparation is required in order to understand the principle behind the process. Semi-automatic preparation is discussed and demonstrated on state of the art equipment. After a lecture on the best use of the metallograph the structures of the materials are documented and entered in a laboratory notebook that is graded and returned to the students for future reference. Grain size determination, measurements and micro hardness testing complete the class.

Superalloys, March 20-22, 2017

March 20, 2017 - March 22, 2017
N. Charleston, SC, 29418, USA
Instructor: Dr. Matthew J. Donachie PhD, FASM and John Marcin, FASM

Knowledge of the basics of an alloy system that plays a role in medicine, gas and oil exploration plus aircraft propulsion and power generation can be valuable to employees of and employers in the aircraft or land based turbine industries, as well as areas such as dental and orthopedic structural materials. This course focuses on the nature, properties and usage of a class of metal alloys called the Superalloys. Topics include an overview, melting/casting/forging information, nickel-, cobalt- and iron-base superalloy properties and characteristics, corrosion behavior, coating for surface protection and some thoughts on the future of superalloys.

Metallographic Interpretation, March 27-30, 2017

March 27, 2017 - March 30, 2017
Westlake, OH
Instructor: George Vander Voort, FASM

If you are skilled in the techniques of specimen preparation and want to extend your abilities into interpretation of metallographic structures and relating structures to service performance, this course is for you. You will deal with the principles upon which interpretation is based. The class is in a lecture-based format along with well-illustrated by microstructures of a wide variety of materials and treatments. You are strongly encouraged to bring samples to class.

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.
