ASM Course - Metallographic Interpretation - December 9-12, 2013

everyting materialGeorge Vander Voort is teaching an ASM course on Metallographic Interpretation - December 9-12, 2013

This course is intended for those who have achieved some skill in techniques of specimen preparation, and wish to extend their ability to interpret metallographic structures and relate structures to service performance. It deals with the principles upon which interpretation is based and is presented in a lecture-based format well-illustrated by microstructures of a wide variety of materials and treatments. Students are strongly encouraged to bring samples to class.
