To improve engineers’ knowledge of commonly-used metals and alloys, their properties and potential deficiencies and to briefly raise awareness of the related welding, non-destructive testing and corrosion aspects.

Presentation outline:

• Introduction

• Material properties

• Metallurgy of common alloys

• Welding

• Non-destructive testing

• Corrosion


Presenter profile:

Rob Howard is a Materials Engineer with over 20 years experience at Lloyd's Register in corrosion management and materials engineering.
