Mechanical Testing of Metals, December 4-7, 2017
December 04, 2017 - December 07, 2017
Venue: ASM World Headquarters - Materials Park | Location: Novelty, OH, 44073-0002
Instructor: Mr. William L. Mankins, FASM | Classroom | Product code: 223343C17
Price: $2600.00 Member Price: $2400.00
This course 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.
ASM Handbook Volume 8 is included when taking this course.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
- Design Engineers
- Process Engineers
- QA Managers
- Product Development Specialists
- Sales and Purchasing Professionals
- Some exposure to metallurgy and the correlation of mechanical properties to microstructure is helpful.
- Mathematics background that includes exposure to algebra and the use of logarithms is recommended.
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
- Select the appropriate Hardness Testing method for the sample geometry and material condition
- Perform a variety of standardized tension, torsion and impact tests to determine the mechanical properties
- Interpret test data to calculate mechanical properties such as Young's modulus, Ultimate Tensile Strength, Offset Yield Strength and Ductility

Mr. William L. Mankins, FASM, graduated from West Virginia University with a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering and a MS degree in Metallurgical Engineering. He served two years in the US Army at the US Army Air Defense Center, Fort Bliss, Texas, working with and teaching air defense missile systems. He is a registered Professional Engineer and a fellow of ASM International (Metals and Materials Society). Mr. Mankins was employed for more than 36 years at Inco Alloys International doing alloy development, process development, Manager of Technology Processing Center (process research laboratory), metallography, electron optics, failure analysis, and material costing before retiring in June 1998. He has been awarded 25 US patents (plus foreign patents on the same subjects) and has made numerous presentations and publications. He was selected to be an ASM-IIM (Indian Institute of Metals) visiting lecturer in India (1998) and made presentations in industry and academic institutions under the sponsorship of ASM and the Indian Institute of Metals. Upon retirement, Bill founded Metallurgical Services Inc., to solve problems for companies not having sufficient metallurgical engineering testimony as an expert witness to the legal profession regarding failure of materials or equipment He have been a member of the ASM Handbook Committee (providing technical oversight) for more than nineteen years and regularly contribute to the handbook series (21 volumes) as an author and reviewer of articles. Bill was honored to have been selected by ASM International for the MEI Instructor of Merit Award in 2001.
