Metallurgy of Carbon Steel Webinar

    About the Course

    Join Michael Pfeifer, Ph.D., P.E. from 2:00 - 3:30 pm Eastern time for this webinar.

    There are a wide variety of plain carbon and low-alloy carbon steel alloys, each capable of being processed in different ways in order to obtain specific properties. Getting the strength and hardness you need in your steel requires an understanding of the metallurgical factors that affect strength and hardness.

    This webinar teaches about the effects of alloy composition and microscopic structures on carbon steel strength and hardness and how the microscopic structures are modified by alloy composition, cold working, and heat treating in order to obtain specific strength and hardness. Also, the considerations required for selecting a carbon steel alloy will be discussed.

    With the knowledge you'll gain from this webinar you'll improve your ability to have more meaningful discussions with suppliers, evaluate suppliers, and solve quality problems faster.


    What You'll Learn

    The following topics will be discussed:

    • Different types of plain carbon and low-alloy carbon steel alloys and their designations
    • Common microstructures found in steels and their influence on steel strength and hardness
    • Effects of carbon content on steel strength and hardness
    • Brief explanations of common heat treatments and their effects on steel microstructure and properties


    Target Audience

    Design engineers, manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, sourcing specialists.
