Engineering staff involved with design, specification, fabrication, inspection or application of stainless steel materials.
Basic metallurgy and properties of stainless steel; corrosion and oxidation resistance; weldability of highly corrosion resistant grades (duplex, super duplex and high alloy austenitics); weldability of conventional stainless steels (austenitic, ferritic and martensitic); avoidance of weld defects; use of Schaeffler diagram for dissimilar joints; measurements of ferrite levels and ferrite number (FN); weld overlaying and welding clad steels; degradation of stainless steels (pitting, crevice corrosion and stress corrosion cracking); practical considerations for welding stainless steels.
