About the Program

Long and forged products are used in many critical applications, including transportation, energy and heavy equipment. This symposium intends to bring together international and domestic researchers from industry and academia to present on topics related to advances in the physical, mechanical, and product metallurgy of bars, tubes and forgings. Presentations will address new developments in areas such as alloy design, thermal or thermomechanical processing, microstructure control during steel manufacturing or heat treatment, application of alloys to the automotive and energy industries, and various other aspects of physical and mechanical metallurgy affecting manufacture of the raw materials and manufacture and service performance of the final products.

Who Should Attend

The conference should be attended by researchers and engineers interested in steel metallurgy focused on bars, tubes, and forged products who are responsible for the production and implementation of the products in steel mills, automotive facilities, energy products, and other industries, along with government and academic professionals and students.

Topics of Interest:

  • Bar, rod, and wire products

  • Microstructural control

  • Microalloying approaches

  • Surface hardening and modification

  • Hydrogen embrittlement

  • High-strength and/or high-toughness steels

  • Fatigue of heat-treated products

  • Materials and/or process modeling

  • Forgings: closed or open die, large or small section

  • Thermomechanical processing developments

  • Seamless mechanical tubular products

  • Improved steel cleanliness

  • Innovative facilities and process technologies

  • Machinability

Bring Your Own Young Professional (BYOYP) Program

AIST recently launched the Bring Your Own Young Professional (BYOYP) program to encourage our members to help boost the next generation’s involvement in AIST and the steel industry. If you are an AIST member and are bringing a Young Professional (age 30 and under) to the conference, you can receive a free gift. All you have to do is enter their contact information on the registration form when you sign up for the conference. Find out more information about the program here.  

Professional Development Hours

This course may qualify for up to 19.75 Professional Development Hour (PDH) credits. Each attendee will receive a certificate listing the quantity of PDH credits earned for the course. This course is not approved for PDH credits in New York, Florida, North Carolina and Oklahoma.
