Introduction to Steel and Welding Metallurgy

Course Overview

This course covers how steels are made, the microstructures that make up steels, how heating and cooling affect the properties of steel and how steels are classified. This is the foundation of other metallurgical principles needed to understand how steels react to welding. You will be able to understand the effects of welding on metals and the various metallurgical phenomena that occur in welds. Expanding on metallurgical concepts, this course focuses on the development of sound welding procedures to provide adequate metallurgical properties to the welded assemblies. Heat flow, crack formation, metallurgical transformations associated with welding and the effects of hydrogen on the weld are addressed to provide you with a strong knowledge of metallurgical principles to create effective welding procedures.
