ASME/ASTM Rolled Steels: Plates, Sheets, and Strip

Online Course with e-Instructor Support

Availability: Coming Soon!
Earn: 16 CPD hours

Course Description

This 2-day course is designed for all individuals who work with ASME/ASTM steel standards or those who simply want to learn more about rolled steels: plates, sheets, and strip.

These goals are achieved by studying Connecting-the-Standards© Examples covering ASME/ASTM product specifications, general requirements specifications, and terminology standards.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • identify and apply ASTM standard steel terminology for rolled steels;
  • recall the purpose of rolling steel;
  • describe how to determine the steel rolling reduction ratio;
  • apply the concept of anisotropy to steel rolling direction and orientation of testing specimens; and
  • recall specialty rolling processes.

Who Should Attend

This e-learning course is designed for inspectors, QA/QC personnel, engineers, tradespeople, and others working for plant owners, pressure equipment manufactures and repair organizations, engineering procurement and construction companies in oil and gas industries (oilfield, upgraders, refineries, etc.), automotive plants, chemical plants, petroleum refining, petrochemical plants, power plants, pulp and paper plants, fertilizer plants, and others.
