Materials Technology eLearning | Quality Control, Tensile Strength Analysis, & Data Acquisition Systems

eLearning Course: MB782

The Materials Technology 1 eLearning course (MB782) covers material quality control, tensile strength analysis, and data acquisition systems. Learners will study topics like: the function and construction of a cause and effect diagram; the application and types of destructive testing; the types of tensile testing machines; how to plot and analyze a stress/strain diagram given a set of data for a tensile test; the operation of a linear potentiometer; and the function of a data acquisition formula.

How are Material Characteristics Maintained?

During the manufacturing process, a material goes through many changes from raw to finished material. The finished material must have certain properties or characteristics when complete. Inspections are done during each step of the manufacturing process to ensure that the final material has the needed characteristics. In addition to checking dimensions, inspection tests may include checking properties of the material, such as strength or hardness. Just like dimensional measurements, these test product measurement data and can be analyzed using SPC charts.

What Happens When a Component Fails?

A component, or part, is considered to have failed when it can no longer perform its intended function. Changes in the material’s characteristics, due to manufacturing processes or the application, often cause component failures to occur. There are three types of component failures: fracture, distortion, and wear. A fracture occurs when a part breaks, and it the most serious type of component failure because of safety concerns. Distortion is a change in the shape or size of a component. Often, this can make the part unable to perform its function. Finally, wear is the result of two surfaces rubbing against each other, which removes material from one (or both) of the surfaces.
