Understanding the Metallurgy of Steel


This course explores the metallurgy of steels and how this relates to the failures that have been observed in a number of steel structures. With an understanding of steel metallurgy, structural engineers will be better positioned to advise clients in a procurement environment which has opened up to significant Internationalisation.

The course provides important context to the procurement market for steel and steel structures in Australia, which affects engineers and procurers of steel structures and the importers, manufacturers and distributors who supply them.
