Fundamentals of Threaded Fasteners

2019-12-18
Fastener experts believe that upwards of 95% of all fastener failures are the result of either the wrong fastener for the job or improper installation. Whether this shocking figure is accurate or not, it is irrefutable that threaded fasteners are poorly misunderstood by many in both the fastener and user communities. In October 1990 the USS Iwo Jima suffered a catastrophic steam valve accident minutes after leaving port following repairs to its steam plant. In one of the single most deadly events of Operation Desert Storm, ten of the eleven crewmen present in the engine compartment would lose their lives.

High temperature metals are much harder at room temperature, have exceptionally high melting points (usually above 2000 degree Celsius), and are resistant to wear, corrosion and deformation. The following five on-demand courses are included in the High Temperature Materials bundle.  Each course is approximately one-hour in duration. See Topics/Outline for additional details.
Training / Education

Polymers Bundle

Anytime
Polymers are thermoplastic, meaning that once the polymer is formed, it can be heated and reformed repeatedly. Both synthetic and natural polymers play an essential role because of their broad range of properties. Polymers are relatively low-cost and allow for a wide range of characteristics and colors. Polymers can be both thermal and electrical insulators and very resistant to chemicals. The following five on-demand courses are included in the Polymers bundle.  Each course is approximately one-hour in duration. See Topics/Outline for additional details.
Training / Education

Nonferrous Metals Bundle

Anytime
Nonferrous materials are malleable, are non-magnetic, and have no iron content which gives them higher resistance to rust and corrosion. The following five on-demand courses are included in the Nonferrous Metals bundle.  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.
