INWE 35010 - Introduction to Metallurgy

0.46 CR
In this module, the welding student will develop an essential understanding of the numbering system associated with metals. The number system allows the welding student to properly identify metals that will be used throughout their welding career.

Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Describe the technical terms used in the various phases of metallurgy, from early history to the classification of steel.
  2. Discuss ferrous and nonferrous metals and how they are processed and used in industry.
  3. Describe mechanical and physical properties, surface treatments, heat treatment, and welding of metals.
  4. Determine how the weld variables and weld microstructure affect the mechanical properties of the weld will be able to identify the microstructure of acceptable welds.
  5. Describe and determine a material type based on learned variables.
  6. Evaluate effects of welding heat on the transformations in the weld metal and HAZ of welds.
