Metallurgical Failure Analysis and Prevention

Metallurgical Failure Analysis and Prevention

Description

An introduction to the mechanisms of material failure due to mechanical and environmental factors. The course will enable attendees to determine how and why a metal component has failed or fractured during service and identify a means of detecting and preventing such failures in the future.

It is essential that designers and engineers in the metal industry gain an understanding of the fundamental principles of failure investigation and analysis, due to the increasing demands imposed on high-performance metals and the costly consequences of component failures.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for many professionals in the engineering industry, from design engineers and production engineers to after-sales professionals, laboratory staff, and marketing and sales professionals. Attendees could also be insurance investigators and loss adjusters and those in the sectors of aerospace, automotive, conventional powergen, nuclear and renewable energy.

A basic understanding of science and engineering principles is preferable.

Duration: Online over two sessions on consecutive days.

Metallurgy for Non-Metallurgists

Metallurgy for Non-Metallurgists

Description

This course aims to provide a sound understanding of the scientific principles of metallurgy and how to apply them to specify and process metals in an industrial context.

Learning outcomes of the course:

- Understanding of the metallurgical principles of phase diagrams, crystallography and manipulation of microstructures to achieve desirable properties
- Selection of tailoring of alloys to suit a range of end applications
- Familiarity with all aspects of the production, processing and finishing of metal products
- Understanding of test methods, specifications and product standards

Who should attend?

Professionals who work in the production, processing, specification, design, fabrication or selling of metals.
