Practical Fracture Mechanics, May 16-17, 2019

May 16, 2019 - May 17, 2019
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.

Aluminum and Its Alloys, June 18-20, 2019

June 18, 2019 - June 20, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Kevin Anderson, PhD, FASM

Aluminum is a widely used metal that is playing an increasingly dominant role in the green economy. Aluminum's high strength to weight ratio, low cost, recycle ability, and other positive attributes are some of the reasons that aluminum is being adopted as a material of choice by weight conscious component engineers. This class uses hundreds of hands - on, real - world aluminum components and metallurgical samples to illustrate concepts in the text. Aluminum literature is also provided as a valuable resource for people working with aluminum and aluminum alloy products. Students are encouraged to bring questions and their real-world problems to class for discussion and resolution. This is the ideal class for someone who will be actively working with the many diverse aspects of aluminum technology.

Metallurgy of Steel for the Non-Metallurgist, June 24-26, 2019

June 24, 2019 - June 26, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Robert L. Freed, PhD, 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.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist®, July 29-31, 2019

July 29, 2019 - July 31, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Robert B. Pond, Jr., PhD

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.

Powder Metallurgy for Additive Manufacturing, September 16-18, 2019

September 16, 2019 - September 18, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Howard Kuhn, PhD, FASM

Additive manufacturing (AM), also termed as "3-D Printing", is a digital manufacturing process, which uses 3-D design data to build objects by depositing material, usually layer upon layer. Often referred to as the third industrial revolution, the advancement of AM technologies has brought a revolutionary change in design, engineering and manufacturing processes. The rising popularity of AM across various industries has resulted in an exponential increase in demand for metal powders. Powder metallurgy (P/M) is a metal working process involving production of powdered metals and/ forming precision metal components from metal powders by compacting in a die. Materials now routinely processed by P/M include aerospace super alloys, low-alloy steels, and tool steels; some of which are virtually impossible to process by any other means. This course provides a comprehensive overview of the science and technology of both AM and P/M processes, the materials used in those processes, geometric flexibility, industrial applications and limitations.

Vacuum Heat Treating, October 28-29, 2019

October 28, 2019 - October 29, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Virginia Osterman, PhD, FASM

This course provides the background and practical applications of vacuum furnace heat treating. You will be introduced to the fundamentals of vacuum furnaces and related system components. A complete understanding of vacuum measurement and vacuum pumping systems is needed to perform various vacuum heat treating processes and will be reviewed. You will leave with a practical understanding of vacuum technology as related to heat treating and it is a follow up to courses which cover the fundamental metallurgy of what happens when metals are heated and cooled. This course will include hands on instruction utilizing the ASM Laboratory Vacuum Furnace and include examples of real world heat treating cycles.

Practical Interpretation of Microstructures, November 4-6, 2019

November 04, 2019 - November 06, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Daniel P. Dennies, PhD, 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.

Practical Fractography, November 5-6, 2019

November 05, 2019 - November 06, 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.
