Steel materials and their application, additive manufacturing, surface technologies

This area will provide a platform for a discussion of the recent research work on development of different types of steels, i.e. AHSS, TRIP, TWIP, HSLA, press hardening steels, corrosion resistant stainless steels, tool steels, heat resistant steels, maraging steels and others, powder metallurgy of steel materials and surface treatment processes and technologies for improving properties of steel materials. The main purposes are to give an up-to-date on the latest development and studies in the areas, to share the experience, ideas and strategies, and to discuss the current issues facing those involved in this field.
