Technical Session Schedule

Thursday, April 10

Chat with the Experts: Metallurgical Engineering, Failure Analysis and Testing in the Transportation World
(Session Code: MCHAT)

Room 330 A/B  4:00 p.m.

Determining how metals have been processed and how they will perform in automotive manufacturing environments and applications are important to successfully developing new products and solving warranty problems for current products. Metallurgical, chemical analysis, mechanical and fatigue testing are important to database development, saving weight and global material substitution initiatives. Failure analysis is important to determining what key design, material, manufacturing, and service considerations, either singularly or in combination, lead to failures and how product quality can be improved.

Presenters - John M. Tartaglia, Element Materials Technology
