Module 08 - Basic Metallurgy and Material Specification


This module will give a foundation for understanding the effects of welding on metals and the various metallurgical phenomena that occur in the welds. The topics covered include how steels are made, the microstructures that make up steels, how heating and cooling effect 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.
