Nickel and Nickel Alloys Self-Study Course

Self-Study | Product code: 21431C

Price: $1400.00 Member Price: $1200.00

Where long performance life and reduced lifecycle costs are at issue, nickel and nickel alloys can frequently provide an excellent alternative. Today, as long mill lead times attest, higher alloyed materials are being used to an even greater extent. To provide dependable information on when to use these alloys -- and in which applications -- this course has been developed.

By providing a basic understanding of nickel alloys, and citing examples of applications in a number of diverse industry segments, this course will help attendees more effectively select the right alloy group for specific applications.

This course was developed to compensate for the general lack of knowledge in the market place regarding nickel and nickel alloys. Because of universities' focal points on ferrous materials, metallurgical and materials engineering students usually graduate with little knowledge of nickel alloys and their usage.

Target Audience

  • Design, Metallurgical and Maintenance Engineers
  • Materials Specifiers
  • Fabricators
  • Heat Treaters.
  • Sales staff from industry or metal distribution and purchasing staff also will benefit


Required Pre-Requisites

Taking this course requires a basic understanding of metallic materials. A formal degree is not required, but participants should understand terms used in defining metals.


Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Evaluate when to consider nickel alloys, including physical, mechanical and environmental conditions that dictate their use
  • Determine how nickel alloys differ in structure from the martensitic and ferritic materials
  • Assess the corrosion resistance of nickel alloys
  • Describe major applications in key industries
