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.

Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Ron Parrington, P.E., 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.

Vacuum Heat Treating, October 28-29, 2019

October 28, 2019 - October 29, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: 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 Fractography, October 23-24, 2019

October 23, 2019 - October 24, 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.

Practical Fracture Mechanics, October 21-22, 2019

October 21, 2019 - October 22, 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.

Nitinol for Medical Devices, October 21-23, 2019

October 21, 2019 - October 23, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, 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, percutaneous delivered heart valves, kink resistant guide wires, and self-locking orthopedic devices. Its superelastic qualities allow the alloy to withstand large amounts of recoverable strain, and its potential for excellent biocompatibility and fatigue resistance make it the material of choice for some of the most demanding medical device applications.

Heat Treating for the Non-Heat Treater, October 21-23, 2019

October 21, 2019 - October 23, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. D. Scott MacKenzie, PhD, FASM

This course is for the Non Heat Treater (part designers, material specifiers, purchasing agents and technicians) who need a basic education in heat treating and need to learn how to "speak the language". The focus will be on the "value added" by heat treating. The effects that heat treating process parameters (time, temperature and atmospheres) have on the final properties of a product and the links between microstructure and mechanical properties are discussed, as well as reasons for distortion, cracking and part rejections.
