  • Integrated Computational Materials Education
    Sunday, March 11, 2012
    This short course includes lectures on the theory behind Thermo-Calc, a hands-on session on installing and using the software, and a lab session with computation-based problems.

  • Electrowinning and Electrorefining of Copper and Zinc Short Course
    Sunday, March 11, 2012
    This course will provide general fundamental information about electrochemical processing of metals that apply to a wide variety of metals.

  • Lead Free Solders Workshop
    Sunday, March 11, 2012
    This workshop will be focused on new solder alloy compositions and their phase stabilities, as well as the impact of microalloying on solder joint microstructure and mechanical performance.

  • Process Energy Modeling Spreadsheets and Beyond
    Sunday, March 11, 2012 • 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
    This course provides a thorough explication of techniques for energy balance calculations in the production, utilization, conservation, and conversion of energy in materials processing. The emphasis is on teaching by examples, and relies heavily on the use of Excel and Excel-based tools for a database and balance calculations.

  • The Estimation of Slag Properties
    Sunday, March 11, 2012
    The course aims to provide an understanding of the nature of molten and solid slags and to provide suitable methods to estimate their physical properties.
