When designing equipment for low-temperature applications, it is important to keep in mind that low temperature can adversely affect on properties of many commonly used engineering metals.

Low temperature application of metallic components needs an engineering understanding for reliable and safe operation. It is well known that metals/alloys behavior different with respect to temperature applications. For cryogenic or low temperature service the principal damage mechanism is susceptibility to brittle fracture arising from DBTT (ductile to brittle transition temperature} phenomena. The mechanism and behavior of different metals would help to take timely decision with respect to allied damage mechanisms and its effect on properties. This course is designed to help design, fabrication, maintenance and inspection engineers dealing with cryogenic services.
