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 for the Non-Metallurgist®, September 10-13, 2018

September 10, 2018 - September 13, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. McIntyre. R. Louthan, Jr, 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.

Basics of Heat Treating, September 17-19, 2018

September 17, 2018 - September 19, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Gary Swiatek

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.

Practical Fractography, September 17-18, 2018

September 17, 2018 - September 18, 2018
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.

Practical Heat Treating, September 18-21, 2018

September 18, 2018 - September 21, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. William L. Mankins, FASM

Practical Heat Treating Teaches the "how" of Heat Treating. You will learn the heat treatment process of steel as well as what type of atmosphere is best for furnace operations for the safety of personal and equipment. In addition you will be able to recognize heat treating problems and establish quality control procedures. Plant Managers, Quality Control specialists and Engineers alike will be able to benefit from attending this 4 day event.

Practical Fracture Mechanics, September 19-20, 2018

September 19, 2018 - September 20, 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.

Heat Treating Furnaces and Equipment, September 20-21, 2018

September 20, 2018 - September 21, 2018
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Gary Swiatek

Heat treating is key to most manufacturing process, so the equipment used is just as important as the process itself. This course provides an overview of essential aspects associated with various furnace units used to heat treat metallic parts. For your benefit, the course will take place in the classroom as well as two guided factory tours. This will give you an inside view of the world of heat treating furnaces and equipment.

Mechanical Testing of Metals, September 24-27, 2018

September 24, 2018 - September 27, 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.
