In this course you will learn: - The description of the allotropic nature of iron. - The effect of carbon content on steel properties. - The Iron – Carbon diagram and the types of phases in equilibrium - The main temperatures and microstructures that affect the iron properties. - The effect of cooling rate on the phases in equilibrium and the variation in mechanical properties of steel that accompany the changes in cooling rates. - The heat treatment processes for steel: annealing, quenching, tempering - The effect of heat treating procedures on the steel microstructure and its mechanical properties. - The case hardening processes: carburizing, nitriding, carbonitriding - The process parameters and how they affect case composition, depth, microstructure, and properties. - Defects that may results from heat treatment processes.
Metallurgy of Steel: Principles and Heat Treatments . The objective of this course is to give principal knowledge about the phases and microstructures that form in steels, their effects on steel properties, the microstructure changes that occur when steel is heated and cooled, the effects of carbon content and cooling rate on microstructures that form. Also, how to read the iron-carbon phase diagram will be discussed. Moreover, this course aims to learn about common heat treating processes and how they are used to modify the microstructure of steels to obtain specific mechanical properties. The course gives you also knowledge about the main hardening processes: quench and temper, martempering, and austempering. This course discusses also common steel case hardening processes and how they are used to modify the surface layers of steels to obtain specific mechanical properties. Participants will learn about the process parameters and how they affect case composition, depth, microstructure, and properties.
