This seminar will describe various attributes of heat treating of aluminum alloys and steels, applicable to both cast and wrought aluminum alloys, as well as various grades of steel and cast iron. Isothermal and continuous cooling transformation diagrams as well as hardenability, tempering and quench factor calculations will be introduced. Various types of heat treatments such as normalizing, annealing, hardening, carburizing and induction surface hardening, tempering, solution treatment, natural and artificial aging will be defined, and typical temperature, times, and quenching heat treatment cycles will be supplied for some common alloys. The effects of heat treatments on some properties and microstructures will be discussed. Some practical considerations and pitfalls such as decarburization and quench cracking will also be included.
