Key Learning Objectives

This 3-hour online course will recap on Ductility, Brittleness and Toughness ie unit cells, deformation, mechanical properties, and the process route selection.

We will then look at the Dislocations and Slip, and what this involves in plastic deformation. We will examine the:

- Applied shear strength
- Stress-strain and force
- Crystal and grain boundaries
- Grain flow and directions

Then we will go through the Direction of Working:

- Fraacture appearance - fibrous or smooth
- As cast structure or columnar crystals
- Mechanical deformation
- Fracture oxidation
- Fracture flow and directions
- Mechanical damage
- Mechanical fibre or areas of segregation

The course will be interactive with delegate's questions and discussions at each stage of the presentation for you to get the most out of this online training.

Course Content

You will learn from this course what to look for when examining for a fracture in metal. This will include unit cell linking to metal and alloy, together with the flow direction of the fracture.

We will also discuss the physical metallurgy principle process route of the materials' characteristics, reviewing method of manufacture, start of fracture, mechanical damage, classification of fracture which links to Ductility, Brittleness and Toughness.

We will have a discussion on the structure and properties of metals, so you will have time to ask questions about the subject.

Who is the Course For?

This course is useful for those who require knowing more about fractures and their formation and failure which links with Ductility, Brittleness and Toughness and Fracture, highlighting the importance of metals or alloys propterties.

Also, this course links to mechanical properties in a range of metals and alloys for those who are interested in looking at tensile and impact test pieces.


To be working the manufacturing engineering sector, working and carryout out investigations, links to failure analysis and have some understanding of the importance of visual and macro examination.
