Online | Product code: 21352K

Price: $1400.00 Member Price: $1200.00

COURSE OVERVIEW

  • Presents a brief history of metals, providing insight into the discovery and use of pure metals and alloys thousands of years before the modern era
  • Provides an explanation of the unique physical characteristics of metals, including the reasons that metals behave differently than such non-metals as plastics, glass, wood, etc.
  • Explains the basis for the selection of different metals for specific engineering applications.
  • Describes how metals are alloyed to achieve desired properties.
  • Provides details on one of the most important of all alloys -- steel – and discusses how steel is heat-treated to achieve various combinations of strength and ductility.
  • Explains how metals are formed into the components that are used in our most important engineered machines and structures.
  • Describes how metals are tested to determine critical properties, such as strength, ductility and toughness.
  • Discusses why metals corrode, why different metals behave differently in corrosive environments, and how the corrosion of metals can be controlled.

 

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • How metals are recovered from nature and processed into usable forms
  • The characteristics of different metal alloy systems
  • A basic understanding of phase diagrams
  • Factors that affect selection of the proper material
  • Mechanical properties and various testing methods
  • How the properties of metals can be altered through heat treatment
  • Introduction to mechanisms of corrosion and comparative corrosive potential

 

WHO SHOULD ENROLL

This is an ideal first course for anyone who needs a working understanding of metals and their applications. It has been designed for those with no previous training in metallurgy, such as technical, laboratory, and sales personnel; engineers from other disciplines; management and administrative staff; and non-technical support staff such as purchasing and receiving agents who order and inspect incoming material.
