Ferrous Metals Bundle: Steel and Cast Iron PD281943

Topics: Manufacturing and Materials Materials properties , Steel , Ferrous metals , Iron , Heat treatment


Ferrous metals contain iron and are prized for their tensile strength and durability. Most are magnetic and contain a high carbon content which generally makes them, with the exception of wrought iron and stainless steel, vulnerable to rust. The following seven eLearning courses are included in the Ferrous Materials Bundle: Steel and Cast Iron. Each course is approximately one-hour in duration. Modules include: Introduction to Physical Properties, Introduction to Mechanical Properties, Introduction to Metals, Hardness Testing, Ferrous Metals, Classification of Steel, Essentials of Heat Treatment of Steel. See Topics/Outline for additional details. Courses listed above are available only as part of a TooliingU bundle. Custom bundles of any five or more Tooling U courses are available upon request as a Corporate Learning Volume Solution.
