Abstract

New thermomechanical processing (TMP) and steels with exclusive properties are continuously designed and optimized through the development, extension and application of metallurgical models and/ or carrying out expensive programs of R&D. This paper highlights the benefits of concepts such as “robust engineering”, “design of experiments (DOE)” and “process modeling” which are developed with a practical sorting for their better comprehension and effective industrial application. Improved process capability and performance in use of HSLA and high carbon steels, less number of industrial trials and lower costs of R&D are some of the advantages on applying this methodology.
