Fractography, June 11-14, 2018

June 11, 2018 - June 14, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Ashok Choudhury, Ph.D., CLP

This course is designed for a broad cross-section of failure analysis practitioners. Failure analysis principles, tools and mechanisms are covered in detail. In addition, the practical aspects and importance of considering the failed part, the material of construction and the failure circumstances in combination is stressed. Emphasis is placed on learning the macroscopic failure modes and correlation of these observations with microscopic fracture surface features. The salient points are illustrated with case histories. Course attendees are also encouraged to bring case histories to share in an interactive manner.

Stainless Steels, June 25-28, 2018

June 25, 2018 - June 28, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Wayne H. Samuelson

Stainless steels have emerged as one of the more important man-made materials, designed for strength, corrosion resistance, and ease of fabrication. Continued growth in the use of stainless steels provides an incentive to understand their properties, processing, and response to various fabrication routes. This course provides the important facts to help master these alloys for a wide variety of uses.

Metallurgy of Steel for the Non Metallurgist, June 26-28, 2018

June 26, 2018 - June 28, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Thomas K. (Tom) Glasgow, FASM

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.

Introduction to Metallurgical Lab Practices, July 9-12, 2018

July 09, 2018 - July 12, 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.

HT, Microstructures and Performance Carbon Steel Alloys, July 23-25, 2018

July 23, 2018 - July 25, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Dana Medlin

Heat treated bar and forging steels remain the major material for parts (such as shafts, gears, bearing, fasteners, oil country tubulars, aircraft landing gear, tools of all sorts, and many other applications) manufactured for demanding applications that require high or ultra-high strength, high fatigue resistance, and /or high wear resistance, all combined with good levels of toughness and fracture resistance. This course will review the phases that form in carbon and alloy steels and the modifications produced in the iron-carbon diagram by alloying and manufacture. Microstructures and the phase transformations by which they are produced in all phases of manufacture, from casting through quench and tempering, will be described and related to mechanical properties and performance, including fracture and potential embrittlement phenomena.

Nitinol for Medical Devices, July 23-25, 2018

July 23, 2018 - July 25, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Alan R. Pelton, Ph.D.

The unique properties of the shape memory alloy Nitinol have led to many transformational medical device innovations, including self-expanding stents, percutaneously delivered heart valves, kink resistant guide wires, and self-locking orthopedic devices. Its super elastic qualities allow the alloy to withstand large amounts of recoverable strain, and its potential for excellent bio compatibility and fatigue resistance make it the material of choice for some of the most demanding medical device applications. However, Nitinol's unique properties are very dependent upon alloy composition and processing. In this course, you will learn the variables that affect Nitinol's properties, how to control them, and how its unique properties can be applied in medical devices. Hands on in the lab is included.
