Mechanical Testing Techniques - 1 Day Course - Sheffield


This course 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.

Topics covered are:

* Uniaxial Tensile Tests
* Ductile and Brittle Fracture
* Hardness Tests
* Toughness and Impact Testing
* Fatigue in Metals: Principles and Testing
* Creep in Metals: Principles and Testing

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.
