The financial risks in developing a new alloy or thermomechanical process for a steelmaker are significant, especially in the light of recent increases in raw materials and energy costs.

Liberty Steel has therefore been collaborating with Warwick Manufacturing Group to explore how rapid alloy processing (RAP) facilities in academia can be used to de-risk and accelerate the pathway to production scale trials.

There are fundamental differences between full scale and lab-based production, therefore understanding the alternative methods or additional steps needed firstly to allow benchmarking and latterly to optimise process/product development is essential.

The ways that these challenges were addressed will be highlighted through case studies; one focussing on the influence of solidification and homogenisation on delta ferrite in stainless steel and another on the effect of thermomechanical processing on grain size.
