Metallography of Steels: Interpretation of Structure and the Effects of Processing

Published: 2018
Authors: Hubertus Colpaert

This book is a combination of a metallographic atlas for steels and cast irons and an introductory textbook covering the fundamentals of phase transformations and heat treatment of these materials. Every important stage of processing, from casting to cold working is clearly discussed and copiously illustrated with metallographs that show the obtained structures, both desired and those achieved when deviations occur. A valuable companion even for experienced steel practitioners.

Introduction to Metallurgical Lab Practices, December 11-13, 2017

December 11, 2017 - December 13, 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.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgistâ„¢, December 4-7, 2017

December 04, 2017 - December 07, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. McIntyre. R. Louthan, Jr, FASM

Metals and alloys are used in the greatest variety of applications of all engineering materials and drive your products success. That is why it's crucial to have knowledge about what metals are, how they behave, and why they behave differently than ceramics, glass, and plastics. This course will provide you with essential knowledge about metallurgy and how to apply it your business or industry.

Vacuum Heat Treating, November 16-17, 2017

November 16, 2017 - November 17, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Virginia Osterman, PhD.

This course provides the background and practical applications of vacuum furnace heat treating. You will be introduced to the fundamentals of vacuum furnaces and related system components. A complete understanding of vacuum measurement and vacuum pumping systems is needed to perform various vacuum heat treating processes and will be reviewed. You will leave with a practical understanding of vacuum technology as related to heat treating and it is a follow up to courses which cover the fundamental metallurgy of what happens when metals are heated and cooled. This course will include hands on instruction utilizing the ASM Laboratory Vacuum Furnace and include examples of real world heat treating cycles.

Practical Fractography, November 15-16 , 2017

November 15, 2017 - November 16, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, 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.

Stainless Steels, Cobalt Chrome and Titanium Alloys for Medical Devices, November 14, 2017

November 14, 2017 - November 14, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Phillip J. Andersen

This class focuses on the key alloys used to produce medical devices. The material choices for these demanding applications are limited due to the need for high mechanical strengths, long term corrosion resistance, and biocompatibility. Learn about the core properties of these alloys, including their mechanical properties and corrosion behavior. Methods used to produce these materials are discussed and the relationship between processing choices and resultant properties is presented.

Heat Treating for the Non-Heat Treater, November 13-15, 2017

November 13, 2017 - November 15, 2017
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. D. Scott MacKenzie, PhD FASM

This course is for the Non Heat Treater (part designers, material specifiers, purchasing agents and technicians) who need a basic education in heat treating and need to learn how to "speak the language". The focus will be on the "value added" by heat treating. The effects that heat treating process parameters (time, temperature and atmospheres) have on the final properties of a product and the links between microstructure and mechanical properties are discussed, as well as reasons for distortion, cracking and part rejections.
