Metallurgy

Metals technology

Steels and non-ferrous alloys are the materials of choice for the majority of engineering applications. Engineers need a working understanding of how metal alloys are formulated and processed to optimise their material properties. This allows them to make informed decisions on product design, material selection & procurement, manufacturing operations, quality control and in-service performance.

Summary

Steels and non-ferrous alloys are the materials of choice for the majority of engineering applications. Engineers need a working understanding of how metal alloys are formulated and processed to optimise their material properties. This allows them to make informed decisions on product design, material selection & procurement, manufacturing operations, quality control and in-service performance.

This webinar will introduce the fundamental concepts of alloy chemistry, shape forming and heat treatment processes used in all industry sectors from aerospace to biomedical.
