    The symposium highlights steelmaking, casting, hot rolling, and accelerated cooling among many other topics.

    Developments in Plate Steels

2nd International Symposium on the Recent  Developments in Plate Steels

About the Program

This symposium will highlight steelmaking and casting, hot rolling, accelerated cooling and direct quenching, flatness control, line pipe, hydrogen-induced-cracking (HIC) resistant steels, microstructure characterization, product strategies, as-rolled steels, heat-treated steels, welding, and hardfacing. As-rolled steel applications include wind towers, offshore structures, shipbuilding, and abrasion-resistant steels used in construction and machinery. Heat-treated steel applications include tank cars, pressure vessels, and quenching and partitioning to enhance steel product toughness and wear resistance. Due to the overwhelming response to the call for papers compared to the first symposium held in 2011, no keynote speakers are planned this time.

Who Should Attend

Steel production and applications engineers, researchers, users of steel plate and coil products, students, academics, and consultants.
