50 Years of Steel Alloy Design
Organised by IOM Communications Ltd on behalf of the IOM3 Iron and Steel Society
Over the last 50 years the development of steel alloys has been increasingly driven by end user requirements involving more arduous service conditions or environmental considerations (greenhouse gas emissions and conservation of alloy reserves). Developing steels to meet these ever-more demanding requirements has been achieved by the novel use of alloying additions both singly or in combination, often coupled with developments in processing routes. The aim of this conference is to document the significant achievements of the full steel supply chain in meeting the challenges presented by these more stringent demands, at the same time demonstrating the benefits both to the full supply chain and also to society as a whole.
The conference will track the development of alloys in a range of important markets and applications.
In addition to the retrospective nature of the conference consideration will be given to identifying future material requirements in important market sectors.
