The AWS Metallurgy Courses provide a comprehensive overview of the basic principles that underlie the broad field of metallurgy.

Presented in short, easy-to-understand modules, these multimedia courses cover the science, equipment, consumables, process variables, safety precautions, and advantages and disadvantages inherent to each welding process.

Metallurgy I

Metallurgy I

The Basics

Topics include the characteristics of atoms, the periodic table, chemical bonding, chemical reactivity, the atomic structure of materials, and the properties of metals. Understand the metallurgical techniques that allow you to accurately design, produce, and inspect welds.


Metallurgy II

Metallurgy II

Nature and Properties of Metals

Welding involves various metallurgical phenomena, including melting, freezing, diffusion, precipitation, thermal strains, and shrinkage. If disregarded or misunderstood, these effects can lead to cracking, porosity, or welds with poor properties.
