Practical interpretation is a "Hands-On" course. The microstructures, heat treatment and use of each group of alloys are presented in a lecture. The lecture is followed by viewing of actual structures on a projection screen. The features of the structures are pointed out and discussed. The students 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.

 

 

 

 

Students are encouraged to bring prepared metallographic specimens to the class for discussion.  

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

* Metallographers
