Steel Metallography, August 12-15, 2019

August 12, 2019 - August 15, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Dr. Laura Moyer, PhD

The ability to understand and control microstructure and properties in steels is critical for many industries and applications.This course deals specifically with the metallographic preparation of steels to reveal the microstructure accurately and provides a unique perspective and understanding for interpretation of steel microstructures. The class works as a team to build a reference notebook of steel microstructures and will perform heat treatment, metallography, hardness, and micro-hardness testing. The class will learn to determine prior austenitic grain size, and understand the effect of cooling rate on the resulting microstructure; learn how to identify Austenite, Ferrite, Pearlite, Bainite (upper and lower), and Martensite (lath and plate), and understand the formation and growth of these microstructures. The course includes video shot using a hot stage microscope at Lehigh University that shows several phase transformations common to steels in real time

2376 E. Pacifica Pl., Rancho Dominguez, CA, 90220, USA
Instructor: 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.

Corrosion, August 5-8, 2019

August 05, 2019 - August 08, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Mr. Thomas K. (Tom) Glasgow, FASM

Corrosion occurs in all industries from automotive and aerospace to infrastructure, construction, petroleum, power, paper making, food processing, bio-engineering, and pharmaceuticals. Corrosion is costly, dangerous, wasteful, and unsightly. It can be predicted, controlled, and even avoided. This class presents an overview of the eight major corrosion processes and related corrosion monitoring, prediction and control mechanisms. The principles discussed are applicable to all metals. Emphasis is on practical applications of corrosion technology to industrial corrosion problems.

Practical Interpretation of Microstructures, August 5-8, 2019

August 05, 2019 - August 08, 2019
Novelty, OH, 44073-0002, USA
Instructor: Ms. Frauke Hogue, 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.
