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 on-demand courses are included in the Ferrous Materials Bundle: Steel and Cast Iron.  Each course is approximately one-hour in duration. See Topics/Outline for additional details.

Introduction to Physical Properties 
This course provides an an overview of manufacturing materials and their physical properties, including thermal, electrical, and magnetic properties and introduces volumetric characteristics, such as mass, weight, and density.

Introduction to Mechanical Properties
This course provides a thorough introduction to key mechanical properties, such as tensile strength, hardness, ductility, and impact resistance and discusses how shear, compression, and tensile stress impact a material's properties.

Introduction to Metals
This course provides an overview of popular ferrous and nonferrous metals and their properties and introduces the three types of metal crystal structures, how grains develop in metal, the purpose of heat treating, and how these aspects impact a material's characteristics.

Hardness Testing
This course provides a thorough overview of the most common hardness testing methods, including Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers, Knoop, rebound, and ultrasonic tests, and presents a description of each method, how to choose and perform a test, how to read hardness ratings, and how to prevent common errors.

Ferrous Metals
This course discusses the properties and applications of cast iron and steel, including an overview of plain carbon steel, stainless steel, and HSLA steels, along with an introduction to AISI-SAE designations.

Classification of Steel
This course introduces you to steel designations systems, particularly AISI-SAE and UNS methods, and describes classifications for plain carbon, alloy, high-strength low alloy, stainless, and tool steels, with a focus on AISI-SAE designations.

Essentials of Heat Treatment of Steel
This course provides a through introduction to steel heat treatment, including a discussion of how heat and carbon content impact a steel's microstructure, and also describes common heat treating methods, such as annealing, quenching, normalizing, and tempering.

Courses listed above are available only as part of a Tooling U-SME bundle.  Custom bundles of any five or more Tooling U-SME courses are available upon request as a Corporate Learning Solution.
