Nitinol for Medical Devices, May 6-8, 2019

May 06, 2019 - May 08, 2019
Santa Clara, CA, 95054, USA
Instructor: Dr. Alan R. Pelton, PhD

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.

Introduction to Metallurgical Lab Practices, May 6-8, 2019

May 06, 2019 - May 08, 2019
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.

Practical Fractography, May 14-15, 2019

May 14, 2019 - May 15, 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.

Magnesium-Science, Technology & Application, May 14-15, 2019

May 14, 2019 - May 15, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Francis H. (Sam) Froes, PhD

Magnesium is the lightest structural metal used today and the third most abundant metal in the earth’s crust. Magnesium alloys are in use around the world in a variety of different applications, both structurally and non-structurally. An emerging interest in magnesium alloys for automotive and aerospace applications is based on the combination of high strength properties and low density.

Practical Fracture Mechanics, May 16-17, 2019

May 16, 2019 - May 17, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: 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.
