Corrosion, August 27-30, 2018

August 27, 2018 - August 30, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Thomas K. (Tom) Glasgow, FASM

Corrosion occurs in all industries from automotive and aerospace to infrastructure, construction, petroleum, power, paper making, food processing, bio-engineering, and pharmaceuticals. Corrosion is costly, dangerous, wasteful, and unsightly. It can be predicted, controlled, and even avoided. This class presents an overview of the eight major corrosion processes and related corrosion monitoring, prediction and control mechanisms. The principles discussed are applicable to all metals. Emphasis is on practical applications of corrosion technology to industrial corrosion problems.

Principles of Failure Analysis, August 29-31, 2018

August 29, 2018 - August 31, 2018
2376 E. Pacifica Pl. Compton, CA, 90220, USA
Instructor: Dr. Daniel P. Dennies PhD, 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.

Introduction to Metallurgical Lab Practices, September 5-7, 2018

September 05, 2018 - September 07, 2018
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.

Metallurgy of Welding and Joining, September 10-13, 2018

September 10, 2018 - September 13, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073, 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.
