Practical Fracture Mechanics, November 29-30, 2018

November 29, 2018 - November 30, 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.

Metallographic Techniques, December 3-6, 2018

December 03, 2018 - December 06, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. John Peppler

During this course, participants receive intensive instruction and assistance in learning the principles of metallography. Manual preparation, automatic preparation, and hands-on activities, such as preparing a variety of hard, soft, ferrous, and non-ferrous alloys, are used to demonstrate many metallographic techniques.

Metallurgy for Additive Manufacturing, December 3-6, 2018

December 03, 2018 - December 06, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Daniel P. Dennies, PhD, FASM and Howard Kuhn, PhD, FASM

The technical and educational resources of ASM International have come together to help close the growing void of materials and materials safety training in the Additive Manufacturing field. “Metallurgy for Additive Manufacturing” is a four-day course designed to help students learn the similarities between polymer and metal AM, Powder Metallurgy basics, business aspects and industry trends, safety considerations, and much more.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist®, December 4-6, 2018

December 04, 2018 - December 06, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Thomas K. (Tom) Glasgow, 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.

Mechanical Testing of Metals, December 10-13, 2018

December 10, 2018 - December 13, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. William L. Mankins, FASM

This is a hands-on introduction to standard mechanical testing and the properties derived from those tests, together with a discussion of testing philosophy to determine suitability for service and suitability for manufacture. Standardized testing procedures (ASTM, SAE, AWWA, etc.) are discussed, including limitations of a test, why specific requirements are present in the test procedure, and interpretation of experimental results. There is discussion of how metallurgical variables can affect test results, and how microstructure can affect selection of a given testing procedure. (For example, hardness testing of wrought vs. cast material.) This course is taught at a level that requires some algebraic manipulation as well as the use of logarithms. Students are required to bring a scientific calculator.

HT, Microstructures and Performance Carbon Steel Alloys, December 10-12, 2018

December 10, 2018 - December 12, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Dana Medlin, PhD

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.

Practical Interpretation of Microstructures, January 21-24, 2019

January 21, 2019 - January 24, 2019
2376 E. Pacifica Pl. Compton, CA, 90220, USA
Instructor: Ms. Frauke Houge, FASM

This "Hands-On" course presents information on microstructures, heat treatment and use of each group of alloys. You will be able to view actual structures on a projection screen.The features of the structures are pointed out and discussed. You will then examine the over 200 mounts at their microscope stations and compare them with an illustrated and annotated notebook of the structures. There are no required prerequisites, but the basic knowledge of sample preparation, heat treating or metallurgy will enhance the understanding of the presented material. You are encouraged to bring prepared metallographic specimens to the class for discussion.

Basics of Heat Treating, February 11-13, 2019

February 11, 2019 - February 13, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. William M. Andreski

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.
