About SimPro Conference

Steel research is chiefly driven by the desire to produce steels with tailor made microstructure and properties suited to diverse applications. Significant progress has been made in understanding the influence of alloying elements, hot deformation of austenite and its controlled decomposition during cooling, cold rolling and annealing on microstructures and mechanical properties in hot and cold rolled products.
