Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist®, April 29-May 2, 2019

April 29, 2019 - May 02, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. McIntyre. R. Louthan, Jr., PhD, 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.

Metallurgy of Welding and Joining, April 29-May 2, 2019

April 29, 2019 - May 02, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Robert W. Messler, Jr., PhD, FASM

Welding metallurgy is a complex subject because it requires knowledge of materials, welding processes, design, and inspection. Metallurgy of Welding and Joining provides an excellent review of welding processes, welding of materials ranging from carbon steel to specialized alloys, guidelines for designing weldments to facilitate welding, and testing and inspecting welds to meet performance requirements. To measure your retention of each lesson's materials and end-of -lesson test will be provided, in addition to an end of course examination.

Metallography for Failure Analysis, April 29-May 2, 2019

April 29, 2019 - May 02, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Ms. Frauke Hogue, FASM

This practical lab course focuses on metallographic techniques of failure analysis and will take you through the process of initial visual examination, fracture cleaning, documentation, and unusual metallographic sample preparation techniques and metallographic interpretation of various failure modes. You are encouraged to bring your own samples to prepare. Samples of various failure modes will also be provided.

Introduction to Metallurgical Lab Practices, May 6-8, 2019

May 06, 2019 - May 08, 2019
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.

Practical Fractography, May 14-15, 2019

May 14, 2019 - May 15, 2019
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.

Practical Fracture Mechanics, May 16-17, 2019

May 16, 2019 - May 17, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: John Landes, PhD

This course provides a practical understanding of fracture mechanics principles through a combination of lecture and problem solving activities. Design and failure analysis for monotonic and cyclic loaded components will be covered. Take away a new understanding of topics such as fracture toughness testing, ductile fracture testing, stress corrosion cracking and fatigue failure. Linear and non-linear fracture mechanic concepts and methods appropriate for a given loading or failure mode will be applied to make sense of this sometimes confusing discipline.

Principles of Failure Analysis, 4 days, May 20-23, 2019

May 20, 2019 - May 23, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Ron Parrington, P.E., FASM

This lecture course is designed to provide the knowledge to bridge the gap between theory and practice of failure analysis. This course presents a very 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 pre-requisites 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.
