Comparison of Pilot Scale and Industrial Trial Results for Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) Development.

Developing new high performance steels using pilot scale facilities such as those available at CanmetMATERIALS laboratory in Hamilton is more efficient and cost effective than using industrial lines. However, some recent projects carried out for Stelco Inc revealed unexpected discrepancies between pilot scale results and real industrial data. The aim of this project is to identify the best strategies to minimize these discrepancies between the pilot scale and industrial processes so that our laboratory simulations more closely approach the final product in terms of structure and properties.
