Sample Precipitation Strengthening Screenshot
If your products use precipitation strengthened alloys, you need to understand the factors that affect alloy strength and hardness and how heat treating should be controlled to obtain the desired mechanical properties.
This course teaches 3 key aspects of precipitation strengthening:
1. The microstructure changes that occur during precipitation strengthening.
2. The effects of heat treating process conditions on alloy microstructure.
3. The relationship between microstructure and alloy strength.
This information will enable you to understand the effects of heat treating processes and heat treating process parameters on the microstructure and properties of precipitation strengthened alloys.
Approximately 2 hours of instruction divided into 5 easily manageable modules.
