Essentials of Heat Treatment of Steel

"Essentials of Heat Treatment" provides a through introduction to steel heat treatment, including a discussion of how heat and carbon content impact a steel's microstructure. This class also describes common heat treating methods, such as annealing, quenching, normalizing, and tempering. Steel is heat treated to adjust the metal's properties. Heat treatments can increase a steel's hardness or ductility, or relieve stresses that accumulate due to other processing steps. To choose the best heat treating method for an application, manufacturers must understand how heat and carbon dictate phase changes and how different processes can be combined to produce a desired property. After completing this course, users will be familiar with heat treating theories and processes and be better equipped to use heat treatments.
