Event description

Description

The Albuquerque Chapter of ASM International is teaching a metallurgy course geared towards non-metallurgists. The topics listed below will be covered, and successful completion of the final exam will give students 3 CEU (continuing education units). The course is being taught by a group of subject matter experts from Sandia National Laboratories - Lisa Deibler, Jeff Rodelas, Don Susan, Jay Carroll, Mara Schindelholz, Doug Taylor, Deidre Hirschfeld, and Zahra Ghanbari.

WHO SHOULD ENROLL

This is an ideal first course for anyone who needs a working understanding of metals and their applications. It has been designed for those with no previous training in metallurgy, such as technical, laboratory, and sales personnel; engineers from other disciplines; management and administrative staff; and non-technical support staff such as purchasing and receiving agents who order and inspect incoming material.

COURSE OUTLINE

Instructors will

  1. Metals: A History: History of the discovery of the major commercially important metals; the first primitive refining techniques; brief descriptions of the cultural significance of metals.
  2. Solidification of Metals: Introduction to the science of metallurgy, including crystal structure; concepts of solidification and solid solubility; basic binary phase diagrams.
  3. Metal Forming: Forging, rolling, extrusion, swaging, and other techniques employed to form metals at elevated temperatures; rolling, stamping, coining, spinning, and other techniques used to form metals at ambient temperatures.
  4. Mechanical Properties and Their Measurement: Definitions of mechanical properties and overview of common methods; introduction to concepts of standardization and quality control.
  5. Steels and Cast Irons: Applications and Metallurgy: Description of the allotropic nature of iron and its effect on the properties of steels and cast irons; listing of selected applications of steels and cast irons.
  6. Heat Treatment of Steel: Hardness and hardenability of steel; specific processes and their applications; heat treating procedures, equipment, quenchants, and hardness measurements.
  7. Strengthening Mechanisms: Techniques used to harden metals, including age hardening, strain hardening and related metallurgical concepts for aluminum, titanium, copper, and other nonferrous metals.
  8. Nonferrous Metals: Industrial Applications and Properties: Light metals, aluminum, beryllium, magnesium, and titanium; copper and its alloys; lead, tin, and zinc; precious metals.
  9. Joining: Techniques of welding, brazing, and soldering, including descriptions of specific applications of each process described.
  10. Corrosion and Corrosion Prevention: Causes of corrosion and the environmental factors which contribute to it; types of corrosion are discussed, together with techniques for minimizing it.
  11. Materials Characterization and the Selection Process: Explanation of the designation systems for classes of metals and alloys in worldwide use today; descriptions of factors which affect the selection of a material for a particular application; brief comparison of polymers and ceramics relative to metals; case studies of material selection problems.
