Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist® Trident Technical College, May 14-17, 2018

May 14, 2018 - May 17, 2018
Charleston, South Carolina, 29423, USA
Instructor: Mr. George D. Neale MS, PE

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.

Practical Fracture Mechanics, May 21-22, 2018

May 21, 2018 - May 22, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. 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.

Practical Heat Treating, May 21-24, 2018

May 21, 2018 - May 24, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. William L. Mankins, FASM

Practical Heat Treating Teaches the "how" of Heat Treating. You will learn the heat treatment process of steel as well as what type of atmosphere is best for furnace operations for the safety of personal and equipment. In addition you will be able to recognize heat treating problems and establish quality control procedures. Plant Managers, Quality Control specialists and Engineers alike will be able to benefit from attending this 4 day event.

Principles of Failure Analysis, May 21-24, 2018

May 21, 2018 - May 24, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073, USA
Instructor: Ron Parrington, 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.

Practical Fractography, May 23-24, 2018

May 23, 2018 - May 24, 2018
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.

Steel Metallography, June 4-7, 2018

June 04, 2018 - June 07, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073, USA
Instructor: Dr. Laura Moyer

The ability to understand and control microstructure and properties in steels is critical for many industries and applications.This course deals specifically with the metallographic preparation of steels to reveal the microstructure accurately and provides a unique perspective and understanding for interpretation of steel microstructures. The class works as a team to build a reference notebook of steel microstructures and will perform heat treatment, metallography, hardness, and micro-hardness testing. The class will learn to determine prior austenitic grain size, and understand the effect of cooling rate on the resulting microstructure; learn how to identify Austenite, Ferrite, Pearlite, Bainite (upper and lower), and Martensite (lath and plate), and understand the formation and growth of these microstructures. The course includes video shot using a hot stage microscope at Lehigh University that shows several phase transformations common to steels in real time

Basics of Heat Treating, June 4-6, 2018

June 04, 2018 - June 06, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Gary Swiatek

Heat treating is considered the least understood, but most integral part of the manufacturing processes. An efficient heat treating process reduces the overall manufacturing costs associated with energy use, scrap, re-work, and quality issues. Heat treating is critical for your business and industry.
