The primary objective of this
site is to help students understand the close interdependencies
between the different stages of steel production and to
show how the final properties can be controlled through
composition, processing and microstructure.
This will be achieved by looking at a number of different
applications and having the user:
consider the key properties
required for each application;
identify which stage in the production
route these properties are determined, and;
understand the relevant concepts
through interactive simulations
THIS SITE IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT
OF FERROUS METALLURGY OR THE STEEL INDUSTRY.
