Different microscopy techniques are used to study the alloy microstructure, i.e., microscale structure of grains, phases, inclusions, etc. Metallography developed from the need to understand the influence of alloy microstructure on macroscopic properties. The knowledge obtained is exploited for the design, development, and manufacture of alloy materials. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/metallography-an-introduction/ Wed, 08 Jan 2020 12:43:00 +0000 Dionis Diez, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/27289 Metallography Metallographic Solutions from Leica Microsystems Watch this webinar to learn more about obtaining reliable and accurate metallographic results with Leica microscopes in terms of efficient analysis of non-metallic inclusions in steel as well as of alloy grains and phases.

Wirt. Ing. Norbert Jost https://www.leica-microsystems.com/5116 Metallography Quality Assurance Steel – the All-Rounder That Has to Pass Many Tests Steel is a real all-rounder. However, each application requires a specifi c sort of steel grade. Without steel there would be no Olympic stadiums, wind energy plants, bridges, skyscrapers, trains, planes, cars, razor blades or knives for medical and home use – at least, not of the quality and design we know today. Buderus Edelstahl GmbH in Wetzlar, Germany is one of the world’s top producers of special steel. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/steel-the-all-rounder-that-has-to-pass-many-tests/ Wed, 28 Apr 2010 22:00:00 +0000 Dipl. oec.-troph. Anja Schué https://www.leica-microsystems.com/11047 Metallography Quality Assurance Steel – It All Depends on What's Really Inside Steel, an alloy of iron and carbon, is both stable and elastic, extremely resistant, and a permanent item in our everyday life. Today there are over 2,500 standard steel types, with new grades and applications emerging all the time. Each steel type is specially made for its purpose. It is subject to stringent quality standards to ensure that it optimally withstands the specific loads. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/steel-it-all-depends-on-whats-really-inside/ Wed, 15 Apr 2009 11:34:00 +0000 Dipl. oec.-troph. Anja Schué https://www.leica-microsystems.com/5151 Metallography Research for the Optimal Structure To see how liquids can be made to flow, without being directly heated or touched, you only have to watch a raw egg explode in a microwave oven. Electromagnetic forces can even melt metal at hotter than 1000 °C. In the Magnetohydrodynamics study group at the Research Centre Dresden-Rossendorf (FZD) these complex interactions between electrically conductive liquids and magnetic fields are used to control the flow and solidification processes of liquid metal alloys. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/research-for-the-optimal-structure/ Sun, 02 Nov 2008 23:00:00 +0000 Dipl. oec.-troph.
