Course Learning Outcomes
- Discuss the general origin and role of materials, metals and alloys in the modern world.
- Use standard classification systems, for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys, to specify and identify common industrial materials.
- Discuss the basic industrial and manufacturing concepts related to the processes of shaping metals, and how such procedures are specified and described.
- Perform Rockwell and Brinell hardness tests, and relate the results of these procedures to the basic strength properties of metals and alloys.
- Describe how the structures of metals and alloys relate to their strength properties, and guide their processing operations.
- Discuss the basic processes for strengthening metals and performing the common heat-treating procedures.
- Discuss how the basic concepts of metallurgy apply to machining.
