Materials degradation from environmental conditions is a common factor that will often occur in mechanical equipment used in every type of environment. These processes can frequently materialize in unpredicted and harmful ways, especially when they interact and lead to early component damage or failure.

This five-session course will summarize the mechanisms that cause materials and mechanical components to degrade in service through exposure to deleterious mechanical and environmental conditions. The course is designed to develop knowledge of issues of material degradation in service and the effect upon the performance and reliability in the process of mechanical design. These processes include wear, corrosion, fatigue, and their interactions. The instructor will take a practical approach to the topics to allow participants to cite the causes of performance reduction. Potential solutions will be covered including material selection and material or design modifications that would improve component life and performance in a range of harmful environments or operating conditions. The review of each mechanism will include a presentation of the fundamental basis for these failure mechanisms, followed by practical examples of how they occur in reality.

Learning Objectives
By participating in this web seminar, you should be able to:

  • Cite the typical wear mechanisms that occur in mechanical equipment and their causes
  • Cite the basic corrosion mechanisms and their causes
  • Identify the interactions that occur between wear, corrosion and fatigue
  • Suggest practical material or design solutions to those damage mechanisms

Who Should Attend
Engineers who design and process mechanical equipment; applications engineers involved in equipment or component design specific to an industrial application; materials, process and equipment development engineers; plant engineers; test engineers responsible for product or component testing and analysis of failed mechanisms; and quality engineers who establish methods and procedures for component reliability and analysis of failed components will benefit most from this course.

Instructor(s): Michael Kim
Mike KimMichael Kim is Principal Engineer for Tribological Materials at GGB Bearing Technology. He holds a Ph.D. in Materials Science from Drexel University and has spent 20+ years in the development, testing and application of tribological materials. That has included the development of numerous multi-layer and functionally gradient self-lubricating composite materials designed for use in aggressive bearing applications.

Registration Information
Registration for this live web seminar is available on a per-person basis, similar to purchasing a seat in a classroom. Participants attend an online session from work or home; anywhere with a PC with internet access and a telephone. The fee includes one connection to the conference calls (toll free telephone number provided for U.S. and select countries*) and assigned personal ID number; one connection to SAE's online training center (via WebEx); and access to a secure course in the SAE Learning Center that contains the presentations, supplemental materials, and assignments.

Registrations will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. the day before the start of the web seminar, but early registration is encouraged to allow for pre-course set-up and instructions.

*Global toll-free telephone numbers are provided for many countries outside the U.S., but are limited to those on the WebEx call-in toll-free number list. Check here to see if your country has a global call-in toll free telephone number for this web seminar. If your country is not listed, you may still connect using the US/Canada Call-in toll number or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

Although WebEx Training Manager will automatically launch when you join the web seminar, you or your system administrator are encouraged to download the plug-in in advance to help ensure successful setup. Click here, then follow the onscreen instructions.

Cancellations
If you cannot attend, you may register a substitute in your place or transfer your registration to a future offering. A full refund is issued if you notify SAE at least 14 days prior to web seminar start date. If canceled less than 14 days prior, the full fee is charged. For $50, you may process a one-time transfer to a future offering within one year of canceled web seminar. Canceling may reduce group discounts. To cancel, transfer or send a substitute, call SAE Customer Service at 1-877-606-7323 (US & Canada only) or 1-724-776-4970.

Fees: $720.00 ; SAE Members: $576.00 - $648.00
