This course is intended to give a detailed description of a variety of industrial materials and their uses, and to explain the importance of major manufacturing processes and how non-destructive testing applies to the serviceability of manufactured products.

Course Objectives…

  • Demonstrate the manufacturing steps that consists of converting some raw material, which may be in rough unrefined shape, into a usable product.
  • Understand various material properties and product costs.
  • Explain the interrelation between material properties, qualities, quantities, and processes.
  • Explain various methods and components of joining processes. Discuss variables and metallurgical effects of welding, brazing, and adhesive bonding.
  • Discuss and understand material imperfections and defects, in-addition to welding related discontinuities and dimensional effects due to heating and cooling that can cause stressing, warping, and deformation.
  • Understand concepts of non-destructive testing and application as quality control evaluations to determine acceptability of materials and products.
  • Explain the value of non-destructive testing and the vital role of the production of engineered materials to the safe and efficient operation for intended use.

This course is 8 classroom hours worth 0.8 ICC continuing education units.
