About the 1996 International Symposium on Microalloyed Bar & Forging Steel

July 8-10, 1996 · Golden, Colorado

Proceedings Info

Sponsor:The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). Organized by the Ferrous Metallurgy Committee of the TMS Structural Materials Division

Cosponsoring Societies: Advanced Steel Processing & Products Research Center, Forging Industry Educational and Research Foundation, Forging Industry Association

Cooperating Societies: ASM International, ISS Iron & Steel Society, Society of Manufacturing Engineers

Date: July 8-10, 1996

Location: Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado

Scope/Topics: This symposium will review new developments in microalloying, thermomechanical process design, property evaluation, and application of bar and forging steels. The effect of microalloy precipitation in control of hot deformation and subsequent precipitation to enhance strength of ferrite-pearlite and bainitic microstructues in steels of low to medium carbon content, evaluation of strength, fatigue, toughness, and fracture mechanisms in non heat treated steels or steel hardened directly after forging, and case studies on successful applications of new approaches are major topic areas.

The symposium technical sessions will be organized according to the following topics:
