Steel is, technologically and economically, the most important of all materials. Understanding the metallurgy involved in making steel, in shaping it by hot or cold processes, in welding it, and in heat-treating it to develop any of the extraordinarily diverse combinations of strength, hardness, toughness, and ductility available is essential to successful manufacturing and construction.  This course teaches the basics and delves into some of the more advanced topics critical to steel fabrication.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • Anyone who needs a working understanding of steels and their application
  • Those with no previous formal training in metallurgy
  • Technical, laboratory, and technical sales personnel
  • Engineers from disciplines other than material
  • Materials engineers needing a refresher
  • Management and supervision

 

PREREQUISITES:

A basic understanding of high school chemistry and physics is helpful.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Discuss how steels are made and why they behave as they do
  • Describe how steels can be given a wide variety of mechanical properties by heat treatment
  • Explain why steels are alloyed to offer improved properties and what can be expected
  • Assess how steels can be shaped
  • Describe how steels need to be welded to provide optimum properties
  • Determine why steels corrode and how their corrosion resistance can be improved
