Metallurgy & Materials|
Technical articles on broad areas of metallurgy, metallurgical engineering,
material science, material engineering. Special attention is paid on those areas related to
the metal working and process modeling.
topics in the whole metallurgy and materials related areas, except for those
that fit a specific category following it.
Fundamentals on iron- and steelmaking, production processes and related
equipment (Degassing, Refractories, Blast Furnace, Direct Reduction, Smelting,
Oxygen Steelmaking, EAF, LMF, Vacuum Degassing, etc.).
Materials, properties and manufacture processes for various steels, such as
carbon steels, alloy steels (tool steels, HSLA steels, etc.), stainless steels,
electrical sheet steels, steels for special purposes (high or low temperature
Fundamentals, properties and manufacture processes for various nonferrous
materials, such as aluminum, copper, magnesium, Beryllium, refractory metals
and alloys, special metals and alloys, and so on.
Both conventional casting and continuous casting.
Technical articles on broad areas of metal working. The papers cover both
fundamentals for the entry-level engineers, and advanced topics on recent
development in the area.
Fundamentals on metal working or metal forming. Topics include plasticity,
flow stress, metal flow, metal deformation ability, microstructure, recovery,
recrystallization, thermomechanical processing, near-net-shape manufacturing,
Topics related to the flat product manufacturing, hot or cold, including
continuous strip production, flatness control, protective coating, tin-mill
products manufacture, etc.
Everything in a steel mill that manufactures of wire rod, bar, sections, tubes,
etc. Topics include manufacture processes (reheating, rolling, controlled
cooling, and finishing, etc.), rolling mill equipment (roughing mill,
intermediate mill, finishing mill, Mini Mill, rolling block, water box cooling,
Stelmor process, beam-blank casting and other near net-shape production, etc.),
roll pass design and rolling process modeling, and so on.
Manufacture processes with forging, ferrous and nonferrous; all forging
industry related topics.
Both drawing and extrusion related topics, manufacture processes, equipment,
Manufacture processes, technologies, machinery, etc. with sheet forming.
All topics beyond the above
mentioned ranges, such as
furnace and heating technology,
other metalworking processes,
