ASTM Standards: What are Alloy Steels?

    Price: $150.00

    Course Description

    This on demand webinar is designed for all individuals who work with steels. You will learn how ASTM standards define alloy steel, low-alloy steel, high strength low-alloy steel, and microalloyed steel and understand their differences. You will also learn about the roles of alloying elements in steels, including their effects on the mechanical and corrosion properties of steel products.

    These new skills will improve your ability to identify the correct ASTM specification, grade, and their requirements when ordering steel products and reviewing material test reports (MTRs). These goals are achieved through the use of Connecting-the-Standards© examples, including: ASTM product specifications, general requirements specifications, test methods, and terminology standards.

    Online access is available for one year from the date of purchase.


    Learning Outcomes

    Participants who successfully complete this on demand webinar will be able to:

    • recall the ASTM standard definitions of alloy steel, low-alloy steel, high strength low-alloy steel, and microalloyed steel;
    • explain how ASTM alloy steel product specifications and grades are designated and how they differ from other steel designations like SAE and AISI
    • compare alloy steel, low-alloy steel, high strength low-alloy steel, and microalloyed steel with examples of each from ASTM standards and their applications;
    • discuss how carbon steels, alloy steels, and low-alloy steels differ; and
    • explain the roles of alloying elements in alloy steels and their effects on mechanical and corrosion properties.


    Who Should Attend

    This on demand webinar is designed for all personnel involved with steels, such as: engineers, inspectors, QA/QC technicians, NDE examiners, purchasers, inventory control personnel, tradespeople, manufacturing and repair companies, engineering procurement companies, and others working in most industries that use steel, including: civil construction (buildings, bridges), pressure equipment, ship building, water treatment, pipelines, oil and gas industries (oilfield, upgraders, refineries, etc.), chemical plants, petroleum refining, petrochemical plants, power plants, pulp and paper plants, fertilizer plants, and many others.
