SEATS AVAILABLE More information about this course
- Presents a brief history of metals, providing insight into the discovery and use of pure metals and alloys thousands of years before the modern era
- Provides an explanation of the unique physical characteristics of metals, including the reasons that metals behave differently than such non-metals as plastics, glass, wood, etc.
- Explains the basis for the selection of different metals for specific engineering applications.
- Describes how metals are alloyed to achieve desired properties.
- Provides details on one of the most important of all alloys -- steel – and discusses how steel is heat-treated to achieve various combinations of strength and ductility.
- Explains how metals are formed into the components that are used in our most important engineered machines and structures.
- Describes how metals are tested to determine critical properties, such as strength, ductility and toughness.
- Discusses why metals corrode, why different metals behave differently in corrosive environments, and how the corrosion of metals can be controlled.

13. Quality Control and Failure Analysis: Procedures for predicting and/or evaluating the performance of metals in service.
14. Materials Characterization and the Selection Process: Explanation of the designation systems for classes of metals and alloys in worldwide use today; descriptions of factors which affect the selection of a material for a particular application; brief comparison of polymers and ceramics related to metals; case studies of material selection problems.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
- How metals are recovered from nature and processed into usable forms
- The characteristics of different metal alloy systems
- A basic understanding of phase diagrams
- Factors that affect selection of the proper material
- Mechanical properties and various testing methods
