Introduction to Heat Treatment
Steel is the most common and the most important structural materials. In order to properly select and apply this basic engineering material, it is necessary
to have a fundamental understanding of the structure of steel and how it can be modified to suit its application. The course is designed as a basic
introduction to the fundamentals of steel heat treatment and metallurgical processing.
Who should attend?
Individual new to heat treating and those who need a state-of-the-art update: Technicians, Sales Professions, and Managers.
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
- Explain the importance and application of the Iron Cementite diagram (Iron Carbon Equilibrium Diagram) and its application.
- Describe the Time Temperature Transformation diagram and its infuence on phase transformation and microstructure.
- Predict the mechanical properties and microstructures resulting from heat treatment initiated by thermal transformation.
