Advanced materials selection, production and modeling

Objectives

  • Identification and characterization of available advanced steel grades that require further developments in terms of metallurgical modeling
  • Identification of innovative rolling schedules that could provide further mechanical properties improvements or cost reduction and definitions of the most relevant processing variables
  • Perspective selection of grades for future rolling production
  • Investigation of the thermomechanical characteristics of these grades and phase transformation curves
  • Tailoring of metallurgical and mathematical models for these  advanced steel grades and definition of non-conventional processing variables
  • Providing material for dilatometry, laboratory thermomechanical tests and rolling experiments
