Steel Heroes - Brian Pickering, Terry Gladman and Ken Irvine
Dr. Frederick (Brian) Pickering
He authored over 160 research publications throughout his career.
Dr. Terry Gladman
Terry Gladman wrote a text book called the Physical Metallurgy of Microalloyed Steels
Dr. Ken J Irvine
The research and development activities of these three contributed significantly to the creation of stronger and lighter steels. Their notable research and development throughout the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s laid the foundations for much of the physical metallurgy of high strength, low alloy steels, in particular niobium steels.
