• Casting Methods and Cast Irons
• Types of cast irons, microsturctural features and salient charactertics.
• Metal Forming
• Joining
• Performance during Service
• Mechanical Testing & NDT


Course Highlights:
The course will cover topics such as Overview of Fracture Mechanics, Determination of material toughness parameters like KlC, JlC & CTOD, and Influence of environment on Fatigue Crack Growth Rate. Modes and Mechanism of Failures, Fitness for Service Assessment Structural Integrity and Failure Analysis, Role of Condition Monitoring and NDE in Failure Prevention and Asset Management.

Course Need:
Structural Failures of Pipelines, Bridges, Planes, Ships, Buildi ngs, Boilers and Pressure Vessels based on conventional design has led to desire for increased safety and reliability. The newer method of fracture and fatigue testing based on fracture mechanics approach has assumed great importance in industry for reliable performance of structural component in diverse aggressive environments.
