Metals Training Modules

Fabrication Methods

 
Type:MRes.Mod
Provider:Oxford University
Duration:
 

The aim of this course is to give students a detailed understanding of materials fabrication methods, process modelling and materials characterisation techniques.

Aluminium Alloy Design and Performance

 
Type:MRes.Mod
Provider:Southampton Universi
Duration:
 

The aim of this course is to give students a detailed understanding of the design, structure and performance of common aluminium alloys such that the student can apply scientific knowledge for selection of alloy type, temper and fabrication processes for specific structural applications.

Titanium Alloy Design

 
Type:MRes.Mod
Provider:Imperial College
Duration:
 

The aim of this course is to give students a detailed understanding of titanium alloys such that they can rank them alongside other materials to meet a product specification.

Corrosion and Corrosion Control

 
Type:
Provider:Surrey
Duration:
 

The theory of corrosion and the practice of corrosion control are covered.  The emphasis is on the basic theory of electrochemistry and oxidation as this is essential in the understanding of metal corrosion.  The thermodynamic and kinetic aspects are discussed together with metallurgical considerations.  Using this foundation, methods for reducing, controlling or preventing corrosion are described.  The course includes demonstrations and the opportunity to put the knowledge gained into practice by examining real components which have failed due to corrosion.

Light Metals and Alloys

 
Type:
Provider:Surrey University
Duration:
 

This course covers the processing, structure, properties and applications of a number of families of light metals now in use.  These include the aluminium, magnesium and titanium systems and their composites.  Advanced processing techniques and the enhanced properties that can be obtained by using them will be explained.  Applications are introduced by experts with first hand experience of the use of these alloys.
