National Metalforming Centre (NMC)
1st August 2016
This course suits managers and technicians responsible for the QA testing of metals & metal products.
It is also relevant to designers, specifiers, sales people & buyers. Gives a grounding in the range of mechanical properties and associated metrics measured for metals together with detailed descriptions of the test methods and equipment used. Includes a comprehensive technical manual. Key Learning Objectives: Understand the meaning of terms such as strength, ductility, hardness and toughness. Appreciate why compromise between high values of strength and toughness is necessary. Understand the metal structural differences that give rise to continuous and discontinuous yielding. Be familiar with parameters such as Young's modulus (E), yield strength, 0.2 and 1.0 % proof strength, UTS, ductility measures, engineering stress-strain, true stress - strain and work hardening index 'n'. Distinguish between ductile, brittle and intergranular failure. Be able to interpret the standards and test metrics displayed on mill certificates. The cost is £190 (+VAT) for members and £250 (+VAT) for non-members. Refreshments and lunch are included. Location and Transport: http://www.nmcvenue.com/location.htm.
