For products made of metal, many problems occur because people overlook metallurgy when making design, manufacturing, and supplier decisions and when working on quality problems. Created for design, quality, and manufacturing engineers, the 11 metallurgy courses in this bundle teach practical metallurgy concepts and how to apply them to real-world problems and decisions.
Learn the metallurgical fundamentals of how alloying, heat treatment, and cold working are used to modify metal
Learn how precipitation affects metal strength and the effects of precipitation strengthening, heat treating process
parameters on alloy microstructure and strength.
Learn the analysis techniques and steps to perform a failure analysis of metal components and joints that failed by
fracturing, corrosion, or poor manufacturing quality.
Learn the metallurgical changes that occur during case hardening processes and the effects of alloy composition heat
treating process parameters on steel microstructure and properties.
Learn about the metallurgy of carbon steel, including common microstructures and their influence on steel properties,
and effects of heat treating on steel microstructure and properties.
Learn the metallurgical changes that occur during through hardening and effects of composition, heat treating time and
temperature, and quench rate on microstructure and properties.
Learn about the metallurgy of wrought aluminum alloys, including the effects of alloy composition, cold-working, and
heat treating on aluminum microstructure and strength.
Learn the parts of a corrosion cell, seven common corrosion mechanisms, metallurgical and mechanical factors that
influence corrosion rate, and design approaches to prevent corrosion.
Learn how tensile tests are performed and the mechanical properties determined based on the test data.
Learn how Brinell, Rockwell, and microhardness tests are performed and how samples are prepared for testing.
Learn about electroplating process steps, important coating properties and features and how they are evaluated, and
coating defects and causes.
