This online course teaches about the microscopic changes that take place in a precipitation strengthened alloy and their effects on the properties of the alloy. The effects of the different heat treating steps (solution treatment, quench, and aging) and heat treating process parameters (solution treatment temperature and time, quench rate, and aging temperature and time) on the alloy microstructure and the effects on alloy strength are discussed. The course is divided into five modules followed by a quiz.
