Processing of Metals (3) Modern methods of shaping metals in liquid and solid states: casting, joining, powder and deformation processing. Design of new technology.
MATSE 425 Processing of Metals (3)
This course focuses on how metals and alloys may be processed into different shapes and how those processing procedures affect the metallurgical microstructure and properties. Consideration of shape, the alloy composition, and property goals are all factors in selecting an optimum processing "window". Such carefully selected processing conditions not only produce the desired component shape in a cost-efficient manner but also ensure acceptable properties and safe in-service performance. This course surveys the following metal processing procedures: (a) solidification processing, (b) heat treatment processing, (c) welding, (d) deformation processing, and (e) powder metallurgy.
