Introduction
Building on the exceptional success of the research programmes of the European Coal and
Steel Community (ECSC) and the assets left (€1600 Million) at the expiry of the ECSC Treaty
in 2002, a Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) was set up on 1st February 2003∗. The
multiannual technical guidelines of the programme were last updated on 29th April 2008†.
The budget of the Fund is generated by the yearly interests produced by these assets.
Typically these amount to about €60 Million/year of which 27.2% and 72.8% are respectively
earmarked for coal and steel.
The RFCS is definitely an industrial programme which supports research and pilot projects
and supplements the Framework Programme.
An Information Package is available to help programme participants understand the
procedures for proposal preparation and submission, project monitoring and project
reporting. Paper copies can be requested from [email protected]
The electronic version of the Information package and all programme related documents are
available from the RFCS website: http://cordis.europa.eu/coal-steel-rtd
Final reports of the projects are available online free of charge from the EU Bookshop
http://bookshop.europa.eu. They can also be purchased from the sales agent of the
Publications Office. More detailed information on:
http://publications.europa.eu/.
This synopsis also contains proposals which have been selected for funding in 2008.

Title: Development of more economical innovative support systems for gateroads under the influence of rock stresses
Acronym MONSUPPORT
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Focus is on improved monitoring of support systems. This can be achieved by joint research developing and testing monitoring systems under rock stress
and investigating the virtue of support.
Development and testing of new monitoring devices should be as close to practice as possible.
It will be combined with application of new means of support.
For immediate evaluation, online data transfer is required. Particularly during the first phase after driving, the effect of support measures will be monitored
by new suitable systems.
A common European format for recording and interpretation of monitoring data contributes to better competitiveness of European coal.

Title: New mechanisation and automation of longwall and drivage equipment
Acronym NEMAEQ
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Complete automation, together with the optimised mechanisation of longwall workings and roadway drivages, are key important factors for improving mine
productivity. Maximised coal production can be assured by minimising human machine attendance mistakes, reducing labour costs and increasing machine
running time and equipment reliability.
The strategic focus of the project is the development of full automatic shearer face equipment. This will take into account the development of software for
the design of cutting tools with a minimum of pick wear and machine down time. New designs of cutting drums will lead to improved tool cutting (pick)
loading efficiency with less fine coal and dust production. Innovative methods of maintenance and planned repair of the machines will maximise the running
time of longwall and drivage equipment.
The research will result in considerably improved productivity within European Coal mines.

Title: Increased productivity and safety of European coalmines by advanced techniques and planning tools enabling an
improved strata control of the face-roadway junction
Acronym PROSAFECOAL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Longwall face ends are the most vulnerable areas of hard coal mines for injuries and production delays. They are also the most difficult to support.
Recently several major falls of ground and major face-end/roadway deformations have occurred in European mines showing that such incidents are often
caused by misjudgement of faulted zones, failing ribs and inappropriate support measure choices at the planning stage.
The project focuses on the development of reliable planning tools and advanced support techniques for faceroadway junctions to enable strata control of
this critical location.
This will have a considerable impact on the productivity and safety of European Coal mines.

Title: Prediction and monitoring of subsidence hazards above coal mines
Acronym PRESIDENCE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Mining Subsidence Engineering is one of the most important topics in relation with coal mining. Although its occurrence, prediction and control are well
known, this project will apply various innovative techniques to an old problem.
These new techniques can been subdivided considering if they will be applied to the evaluation of long term stability of roadways, longwalls or shafts
(Laser Scanner survey and other geophysical non destructive techniques) for subsidence prediction; or if its application is to the subsidence control at
surface (digital photogrammetry, INSAR, seismicity). In this field all these monitoring techniques will be linked, by GPS, to a GIS so a good land
management, minimizing subsidence harzards, above existing coal mined areas will be achieved.
As a consequence of this project a better protection of the environment in coal areas and an improvement of the competitive position of European coal can
be assured.

Title: Improved extraction ratios for deep coal mines
Acronym IMPREX
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this Project is to research, identify and develop practical means by which coal recovery ratios in European deep mines can be improved
significantly in a safe and efficient manner.
To ensure more sustainable use of European coal reserves and reduce reliance upon imported energy, it is necessary to devise means of extracting
efficiently significant tonnages of the extensive areas of coal which are left around (and between) longwall panels and of improving the deep mined coal
industry’s ability to maximise its extraction of thick coal seams, large tonnages of which are currently abandoned in the goaf.

Title: Mine emergency support technologies
Acronym EMTECH
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Recent mine incidents, both within the EU and elsewhere, have highlighted the role that emergency support systems and technologies have in ensuring the
survival of the mine workforce. The large, deep complex mines of the European Union are presenting increasing challenges for the industry. There are
currently deficiencies in situational awareness and supporting communication and evacuation measures
available after a major accident. Crucially required technical progress in these fields will significantly enhance EU incident provision and emergency
preparedness. This will both help to ensure that the workforce is protected and secure the infrastructure of coal production.

Title: Investigation of adsorption and swelling behaviour of coal to determine the feasibility of CO2 sequestration and CH4
production enhancement
Acronym COALSWAD
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The COALSWAD project is focused on a reliable estimation of CO2 sequestration capacity and CH4 production rate in coal.
Topics investigated :
• Adsorption behaviour of coal as function of rank;
• Competitive adsorption behaviour of CH4, CO2, N2 and O2 on moisture-equilibrated
coal;
• Swelling and shrinkage properties of coal and their influence on adsorption data;
• Calculation of absolute adsorption data.
The results of this project will help to decide if CO2 sequestration in coal effectively supports reaching the CO2 emission reduction target. Moreover they
are essential for environmental protection and should be transferable to other European regions.

Title: Flooding management for underground coal mines considering regional mining networks
Acronym FLOMINET
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The proposal wants to develop numerical models to forecast impacts of regional mine water rebound on mine water, groundwater and surface waters.
Optimisation of the mine water management will allow to better protect the environment. The research is also dedicated to industrial interest using the
mine water rise for opportunities to recover renewable energy in form of electricity and geothermal heat. The numerical models will be extended to include
density and temperature terms to become a practical planning tools for these activities. One additional application is the forecast on risks originating from
mine gases pressuried by the rising mine water. The variety of model applications will demonstrate the capability of the proposed methodology for regional
mine water rebound in interconnected underground hard coal mines.

Title: Development of a new generation of coal-derived environmentally-friendly pitches
Acronym ECOPITCH
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This proposal deals with the development of coal-tar based pitches of low toxicity. It is aimed to both, to guarantee the pitch supply for the steel industry
and to reduce the environmental impact derived from the use of coal-tar pitches. Economical aspects in relation with the implementation of the new
technology and the potential impact of the results are taken into account. Apart from the coverage of the needs of traditional pitch user industries, it is also
intended to develop pitches with potential applications in new carbon materials for energy and high technology applications, such as supercapacitors
associated to fuel cells.
The project has been built on the basis of a multidisciplinar consortium, which includes expertise from different research organizations and universities,
under the umbrella of three industries which cover the range from pitch makers to end pitch users. This will guarantee the full exploitation of the results.
The contribution of five countries, geographically well distributed, will ensure a good dissemination of results.
Furthermore, the development of these new pitches will offer the opportunity to upgrade a low value product of the coal conversion process and hopefully,
the opportunity to develop a new pitch which may compete with the well established Japanese AR-24, produced by Mitsubishi.

Title: Reduction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) emissions from coking plants
Acronym REDPAH
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
European steel production relies on reliable coke supply, which can be achieved only if European coke is produced in environmental friendly conditions.
However, using existing coking techniques, the European proposal for new PAH emission standards (benz(a)pyrene at 1 ng/m3) cannot be achieved.
Since more than half of PAH emissions from modern coking comes from door leakages the most effective strategies for reducing PAH emissions with
existing coke ovens are:
- to reduce the original rate of PAH formation in the oven (dependent on the initial coking blend),
- to implement a better control of gas pressure inside the oven.
Further, PAH emissions can be used to help monitor the condition of door seals. Regarding future regulation, it is also important to identify in the
surrounding areas of coking plants the sources of emissions in order to quantify the
contributions from coking to the total PAH concentration in ambient air.
This integrated project includes laboratory and pilot scale investigations as well as tests at industrial scale for validation.

Title: Maximising carbon utilisation through improved raw material selection and process control
Acronym MAXICARB
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The principal aims of the project are to deliver a critical requirement for improved flexibility of carbon sources available to EU cokemakers and to optimise
process operations for maximised coke productivity and reduced environmental emissions.
The work is essential to address rapidly rising coal/coke costs and increasingly restricted availability of traditionally used supplies. The aims will be
achieved through an integrated series of laboratory, pilot scale and plant trials designed to:
• Develop novel coal characterisation techniques for initial selection of suitable blend components.
• Evaluate alternative carbon additives, including biomass and recycled products.
• Optimise blend preparation and process operations for maximised coke productivity and yield.
• Generate mathematical modelling methods for improved blend formulation and coke quality prediction.
• Assess the environmental and economic impact of proposed changes in blend types and process operations.

Title: Hydrogen separation in advanced gasification processes
Acronym HYDROSEP
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This proposal addresses the development of new membranes and adsorbents to reduce the costs of adapting integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC)
processes for hydrogen separation with CO2 capture. The current available technology, physical solvent processes such as Rectisol and Selexol, can only
operate close to ambient temperatures and are best at high partial pressures. A range of high capacity carbon-based adsorbents based on activated phenolic
resins and nitrogen-containing precursors, such as polyacrylonitrile (PAN), will be developed and tested for CO2 capture. Promising membrane
configurations, encompassing metal, ceramics and polymers will be developed and tested to determine the effectiveness of the hydrogen separation
processes at realistic operating conditions. Process designs and modelling will be conducted incorporating the new membranes materials and CO2
adsorbents.

Title: Coke oven operating limits
Acronym COOL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this research project is to define the safe limits of coke oven battery operating conditions compatible with a long service life in terms of
thermal and mechanical stresses.
For this purpose a 3D thermo-mechanical model of the heating walls taking into account the assembly of bricks and joints will be developed. Different
sources of stresses on the oven walls will be investigated : thermal load, coking pressure, pushing force.
Theoretical (model) and experimental investigations will be carried out at laboratory scale, in pilot oven and in coke plants to evaluate swelling pressure
and pushing force for different carbonisation parameters.
As a result, the maximum acceptable production rate in safe conditions for the battery service life will be defined.

Title: Near zero emission advanced fluidised bed gasification
Acronym FLEXGAS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
In the 1970’s and 1980’s the developments of fluidised bed gasification technologies stopped at pilot/demonstration scale for economic reasons but it grew
the interest in its use with biomass for many reasons (fuel flexibility, wide range operation scales suitability, do not require fine grinding difficult with
biomass).
In this project the way to overcoming the potential disadvantages of fluidised bed gasification and its use to process biomass/waste together with coal (at
different operation scales and applications) and the technology for CO2 capture/reduction will be investigated. The effects of different fuels, composition
and gasification medium on the quality of the producer gas will be also evaluated.
Particular focus is on novel technologies for gasification coupled with CO2 sequestration and for producing hydrogen rich syngas from coal and
biomass/waste.

Title: Hydrogen oriented underground coal gasification for Europe
Acronym HUGE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project explores the technology for hydrogen production through underground gasification of coal in a dynamic geo-reactor. The process will be
controlled through purposed dynamic changes in temperature and pressure of the reactants and products. The project addresses CBM usage and CO2
sequestration in coal deposits. The environmental fingerprint of the technology on air, water and strata stability will be evaluated. The locations of
demonstration plants will be chosen through computer modelling and simulation. Large scale production of hydrogen from coal is crucial for coal mining
industries and will serve the needs of energy, chemistry and transportation sectors of Europe.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project aims are to reduce emissions and maximise energy efficiency of coke oven underfiring heating using intelligent diagnostics and individual wall
heating control.
These will be achieved by developing data-driven diagnostics techniques to detect faults, such as blocked nozzles and through-wall leakage, in the heating
flues and integrated with an innovative automatic individual wall heating control system, and hence reduce NOx, SO2, CO, CO2, particulates emissions
and increase energy efficiency.

Title: Coal catalytic co-gasification in an innovative rotary Kiln gasifier
Acronym CO.CA.CO.R.K.
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Aim of this proposal is to demonstrate the opportunity to produce a clean syngas by means of a pioneering approach to co-gasification of coal/biomass or
coal/waste (e.g. tyres, RDF- Refuse Derived Fuel-, etc.).
The novelty consists principally of a new conception rotary kiln gasifier and of an innovative catalytic gasification. The innovative gasifier combines the
high mixing of a fluidised bed gasifier without the need of a fine fixed feed granulometry and without the problem of a high carry over of the latter.
The use of syngas produced in microturbines/internal combustion engines or, after the hydrogen extraction, in fuel cells, will be investigated and the cleanup section suitable for each application will be defined.
This proposal foresees the construction of a small – scale gasifier (5-15 kg/h) for obtaining all the fundamental parameters and technical/economic
information for a further demonstration project.

Title: Utility scale CFB for competitive coal power
Acronym CFB800
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The development of the unregulated electricity markets has forced the power producers into a new situation. Increased competition brings power producers
more aspects to be taken into account.
Improved competitiveness is the key issue in order to maintain or increase profitability of power generation. In addition, the age profile of the existing
power plants results in a high demand for new power production capacity within the next years.
The replacement or the modernisation of the old power plants utilising modern technology with high steam parameters and high efficiencies would
contribute to the saving of the resources and to the reduction of all kind of emissions.
This would definitely improve public acceptance of coal-fired power plants. However, new investments must be able to compete decades forward in order
to secure competitive power production.
The principal objective of the proposed project is to scale up CFB technology up to utility scale (600 - 800 MWe) to meet the future requirements of power
plant operators at deregulated energy markets.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This project is devoted to the development and full-scale validation of technologies for reducing CO2 emissions in pulverised coal power plants, by means
of increased efficiency and fuel flexibility strategies.
The approach to be used relies on the following complementary scopes:
- Adaptation and industrial application of a novel combustion control based on in-furnace monitoring, which was successfully developed in a previous
ECSC project for Nox optimisation.
- Development of a novel burner with higher fuel flexibility capabilities.
Fuel scenarios to be considered include combustion of different types of coals and coal/biomass cofiring.

Title: Abatement of emissions of trace pollutants by FGD from co-combustion and environmental characteristics of by-products
Acronym ABETRAP
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project focuses on three main topics: a) The assessment of the environmental
characteristics of all the solid residues (ash, slag or FGD gypsum) produced in power plants burning coal alone or coal combined with other secondary fuel,
taking into account the 2003/33/CE Directive on waste disposal recently put in force. According to this standard, the classification of several combustion
by-products traditionally treated (disposed) as an inert or non-hazardous waste or with industrial applications in many EU member states, will have to be
revised; b) The evaluation of the abatement capacity for trace pollutant emissions of wet FGD facilities, also trying new additives, and c) the leachability of
these pollutants from the end by-product, studying if necessary possible remediation actions in order to facilitate the reuse of the FGD gypsum. The study is
carried out in several EU power plants under (co-) combustion strategies equipped with FGD facilities. In addition, the project can also be useful in relation
to the advent of new emission regulations in coal power plants.

Title: Cost effective and environmental friendly oxyfuel combustion of hard coals
Acronym FriendlyCoal
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The FriendlyCoal proposal focuses on advanced boiler concepts for CO2-free hard coal fired power plants with oxyfuel technology.
The main challenge of this technology is the high combustion temperature from the combustion with pure oxygen. The commonly discussed concept to
overcome this problem is the recirculation of significant amounts of CO2.
The focus of this project is to compare this commonly discussed concept with a newly invented concept - the inversely staged combustion.
The project includes the burner and boiler design for an 300 MWth hard coal fired power plant and in particular the testing of a newly design 3 MW burner.

Title: Intelligent monitoring and selective cleaning control of deposits in pulverised coal boilers
Acronym CLEAN SELECTIVE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The scientific objective of this proposal is to develop an integrated On-line tool to locally monitor and detect slagging and fouling in the whole boiler
including convective and radiative part in order to allow selective cleaning of the heat exchangers. The main elements of the integrated tool will be:
• Utilisation of process data like flow rates, temperatures etc. of the power plant, existing signals of the heat flux sensors of the Teruel power station
(Spain) and acoustic pyrometry measurements of the furnace exit temperature (distribution)
• New fouling sensors for convective heat exchangers
• 3-dimensional CFD-modelling of the combustion, fluid flow and heat transfer in the radiative and convective heat exchangers of the boiler and calculation
of ash deposition to indicate areas of ash deposition
• Combination of the CFD-modelling with thermodynamic modelling of the water steam cycle

Title: Development of advanced large scale low NOx oxy-fuel burner for PF combustion
Acronym OxyBurner
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
A promising technology for improvement of use of coal as a clean energy source and CO2 capture is Oxy-Fuel Combustion.
Important research activities in this field are in progress. However, works performed so far has mainly dealt with investigations on process feasibility, its
potential contribution to CO2 reduction and process optimisation. Detailed
investigations on burner design are lacking.
Proposed project therefore seeks to develop an advanced low NOx oxy-fuel burner concept for Lignite and Sub-Bituminous Coals, which is economic,
efficient and clean. Results from proposed 30 MW oxy-fuel plant of Vattenfall will also be available for up-scaling the burner concept.

Title: Application of the biomass, oxyfuel and flameless combustion for the utilisation of pulverised coals for electricity
generation
Acronym BOFCom
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This project will combine the three most advantageous new technologies for the future reduction of CO2 emissions from pulverized coal fuel fired power
plants and
simultaneously maintain high efficiencies and low emissions and be able to use a wide variety of (European) coals. These three techniques include the
combination of Biomass-Oxyfuel-Flameless Combustion. Biomass co-firing has a CO2 neutral
characterisitic, Oxy-Coal firing plus flue gas recirculation will result in increased flue gas CO2 levels which can more easily be separated and sequestrated
and Flameless Combustion has the advantage of extremely high efficiencies in combination with uniform heat transfer and very low emissions. A
combination of these three technologies, especially for coal, has not been investigated before.

Title: High capacity sorbents and optimization of existing pollution control technologies for mercury capture in industrial
combustion systems
Acronym MERCURYCAP
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This proposal addresses the global problem of mercury (Hg) emissions from coal-fired plants and the current position of conventional air pollution control
devices (APCDs) only providing partial solution for oxidized Hg capture, particularly for low-rank coals. Our previous work has shown that (1) low-cost
gasification chars have superior mercury capture performance than current benchmark carbons; and (2) manganese oxide compounds sorb mercury and also
act as catalysts to promote mercury oxidation, that can then be subsequently captured in existing APCDs. Accordingly, the two-fold objective is to further
develop low-cost injection sorbents, and maximize mercury oxidation and its subsequent capture in existing APCDs. Fundamental studies will be followed
by extensive testing in pilot and full scale systems to evaluate the performance of the developed materials under actual plant conditions.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
DENOPT addresses the topic “Efficient protection of the environment and improvement of coal as clean energy source” focusing on the improvement of
SCR DeNOx performance related to deactivation and mercury oxidation. The goal of the project is to develop novel catalyst materials and improve
regeneration processes to reduce ammonia consumption and improve catalyst lifetime. In parallel it is aimed to improve mercury oxidation to achieve an
overall mercury removal rate higher than 90% incorporating a multi pollutant control strategy combining SCR, ESP and FGD.
Furthermore a 3D-CFD model will be developed predicting NOx reduction, mercury oxidation and being sensitive to catalyst deactivation.

Title: Enhanced capture with oxygen for scrubbing of CO2
Acronym ECO-Scrub
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project aims to develop a scheme for retrofitting carbon capture to existing boilers. It uses a novel combination of techniques employed in conventional
CO2 capture, such as oxygen enrichment and post-combustion solvent scrubbing, together with measures to increase efficiency, reduce steam consumption
and generate power requirements without significantly reducing net boiler electricity generating capacity. The project inlcudes development of the process,
module integration and optimisation for a range of plant types and fuels. Fundamental studies also address many issues relevant to conventional capture, so
the fundamental work has wide applicability to new plant and extends ongoing carbon capture research.

Title: Emission free chemical looping coal combustion process
Acronym ECLAIR
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Chemical-looping combustion (CLC) for coal is a zero-emission technology, combining very low efficiency penalty (2-3%) and low CO2 capture cost,
about 10€/ton CO2. Key issues for coal-CLC are: adequate technical solutions to reactors/surrounding systems; oxygen-carrier performance/behaviour and
interaction with fuel; actual demonstration of technology.
The proposal involves scale-up to 1-MWth pilot and experimental/theoretical work to provide basis for design and optimization. This includes
investigation of oxygen-carrier interaction with fuel and long-term stabilility; development of tools/models to identify best reactor design and process
layout; solutions for emission control; testing in 1-MWth plant and technical, environmental and economical assessment including 450-MW unit.

Title: Intelligent control and optimisation of power station boilers firing pulverised coal and coal/biomass blends
Acronym SMARTBURN
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This proposal is concerned with the development of innovating, monitoring control and optimisation systems to improve the performance of burners and
boilers fired by pulverised coal and coal/biomass blends. As a consequence CO2, NOx and SO2 emissions will be reduced and the project will also
enhance the ability of utility boilers to burn coal/biomass mixtures. The proposed systems are:
- A system for monitoring and control of individual burners using low cost sensors and artificial intelligence.
- A combustion optimisation system for an arch-fired boiler using 'local' automatic gas sampling systems.
- Optimisation of a flue gas desulphurisation plant.

Title: Short term CO² mitigation for steelmaking
Acronym SHOCOM
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This proposal aims at lowering the environmental impact of steelmaking, by reducing greenhouse gas emission, and saving energy and natural resources.
The expected reduction at short term is around 10% waiting for higher reduction coming from ULCOS results.
The means are:
the use of charcoal, a renewable source of carbon, in large blast furnaces, either by addition in the coal blend, or by injection through the tuyeres
the enhancement of coke reactivity, to decrease the reserve zone temperature and the carbon need of the blast furnace
the intensive use of wastes as reductant for the BF, through gasification and injection of the produced gas
the addition of waste plastics into the coal blend.

Title: Determination of factors influencing dead man position and evaluation of its impact on blast furnace life time
Acronym DEMPOLIFE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Relining a blast furnace is a costly affair, due to the actual relining cost and production loss.
The campaign life is currently limited by the hearth refractory wear. The objective of this project is to increase that refractory lifespan. Online
measurements at the blast furnace will be improved. New models describing the state of the blast furnace hearth will be developed.
The dissection of a hearth will be used to validate both models and measurements. This will improve understanding of the wear mechanisms and
subsequently lead to better process control and a longer life span of the blast furnace hearth.

Title: Industrial demonstration of hot gas injection at the blast furnace
Acronym IDEOGAS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This proposal is part of the ULCOS Program and is focused on carbon saving at the blast furnace with an objective of 25%. It aims at testing at a real blast
furnace (EKO Stahl BF1) nitrogen-free operation and hot reducing gas injection into the shaft.
The objectives are:
- optimise the gas flow rate injected at the wall and its distribution inside the shaft
- assess the furnace behaviour under these conditions (thermal control, raceway formation, cohesive zone, pressure field, hearth, coke quality damages)
- assess the productivity increase of nitrogen-free operation
- demonstrate high rates of natural gas at the blast furnace.

Title: Enhanced sinter efficiency by optimised quality control
Acronym Sinter efficiency
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The overall aim of this research project is to enhance the sinter efficiency by optimisation of the sinter mix homogeneity and permeability based on
chemical inline-monitoring and on-strand permeability test devices. One of the two main objectives of the project is the development of an inlinemonitoring test device which is able to detect the chemical composition of a sinter raw mix on a conveyor belt in situ. Two different measurement
techniques, XRF and PGNAA are investigated in this project The other main objective deals with the development und installation of on-strand
permeability measurements. Therefore the pre and post ignition permeability is investigated and compared with each other.
Both objectives have in common that the monitoring devices are used to control the sinter process to enhance the sinter quality and productivity.

Title: Improvement of hearth drainage efficiency and refractory life for high BF productivity and a well adjusted reductant
injection rate at varying coke quality
Acronym Hearth efficiency
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Blast furnace stability and productivity will be improved under the aspects of high reductant injection rates and varying coke qualities. BF lifetime, security
and environmental aspects will be raised additionally. To optimise the tapping strategy and to lower the fuel rate, the hearth drainage efficiency will be
investigated with a new deadman porosity parameter, innovative non radioactive tracer tests, new radar and ultrasound measurements, novel analysis
techniques and upgraded simulations of fluid flows in the hearth. Investigations of thermal stresses in refractory and dissection analyses of revamped
hearths will improve lining design for campaign prolongation. The estimated annual savings are up to 0.7 M €/year for each BF in the EU.

Title: Consistent blast furnace operation whilst using low cost raw materials
Acronym Consistent BF
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The proposed reserach will deliver solutions, how to conserve consistent blast furnace operation also in situations, when low cost raw materials, usually of
lower quality, shall be used. Operational trials will explore ferrous fines and nut coke charging, correlated with coal injection rates. New online
inspectionmethods will demonstrate changed material properties between charging and raceway. Scientific knowledge will proceed. Competitiveness for
ironmaking will be increased. The research will contribute to the RFCS programme within the R&D area "Application of developed know-how and
optimisation of the operating conditions in conventional routes" of the Strategic Research Agenda of ESTEP.

Title: Alternate carbon sources for sintering of iron ore
Acronym ACASOS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
New alternate carbon sources for sintering (Acasos) will be investigated with the aim to substitute coke breeze. Therefore Acasos, i.e. biomass, deposited
carbon rich dust, BF-dust and alternate sources as petroleum coke and anthracite will be indentified, characterised and economically evaluated for replacing
coke breeze.
On this basis innovative pre-treatment process, i.e. grinding, separation and agglomeration processes, will be investigated to adapt and optimise the
properties of Acasos. Influences on sinter performance and quality will be determined at sinter-pot tests. Based on this Acasos will be applied in industrial
scale to determine replacement factors and influences on the sintering process and emissions.

Title: Flexible injection of alternative carbon material into the blast furnace
Acronym FLEXINJECT
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project contributes to a sustainable use of natural resources by increased use of alternative carbon sources as BF injectants, improved competitiveness
of the European steel producers and a possibility to decrease CO2 emission. Materials (e.g. plastics, dusts, sludge) are treated in an air-grinder to improve
their
suitability for BF injection and the effect on product properties is evaluated. By tests and theoretical support, two injection layouts for BF application are
compared and the limits of additions to a PC system are evaluated. Additional raceway measurement technique during experimental BF tests is used to
improve verification of raceway simulation.

Title: Control and optimisation of scrap charging strategies and melting operations to increase steel recycling ratio
Acronym CONOPT SCRAP
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The general aim of the project is to allow the best and most economic use of scrap in steelmaking operations.
At the EAF, systems for the on-line monitoring of the scrap charge and for the optimisation of its melting conditions will be developed and implemented in
industrial plants. Both aspects are indeed highly significant with regard to
furnace efficiency, iron recovery and energy use.
Another main axis of work will be to increase the use of lower scrap qualities (including “problem” scrap such as more contaminated scrap qualities with
plastics, rubber and other materials), both for the EAF and BOF in order to
comply with future legislation regarding steel recycling ratios, such as the “end of life vehicle” directive Directive' as well as existing directives on
packaging and coated scrap.

Title: Mastering of P-ESR technology for high nitrogen steel grades for high value applications
Acronym HINIST
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Electro Slag Remelting is the technology for obtaining high purity and soundness steels in large ingots. It is also promising for designing and producing
high nitrogen high performance steels when the process is run at high pressure.
The aim of the project is to develop new and improved methods for production of both martensitic and austenitic special steels with high nitrogen content
(up to 1%) for highly stressed and high temperature applications.
The project, carried out both at laboratory and industrial scale, will benefit of specifically developed simulative and process control tools, and will generate
a set of microstructural, chemical, and mechanical characterisations of steels containing high content of Nitrogen.
Specific industrial testing will be carried out too concerning thermomechanical transformation of ingots to verify the whole manufacturing cycle conditions.

Title: Improvement of purging plugs performances by investigations on the materials, process analysis and continuous
monitoring
Acronym ImPurgingAr
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The object of the research proposal is the purging plugs for ladle Ar blowing.
The objective is to improve the plugs selection and management in order to enhance their performances.
The work programme is based on a multidisciplinary approach that involves steel maker, purging plugs producer and researcher working on refractory
materials and technology and on measuring methodologies and system applied to the steel making environment.
The activity forecast both on plant and laboratory trials.
Trials on plant want to characterise standard and enhanced ladle practices, standard and new purging plugs, with respect the plugs performances. During
these trials plug refractory wear measurements are carried out.
Laboratory trials forecast refractory investigations to characterise materials transformations during the use of the plugs and to better establish the
correlations between process and wear of the refractory.
Overall results will be used to set a model of general application of the correlations between the process and the behaviour of the plugs.

Title: On-line determination of the CO/CO2 concentration in the OG system in BOF converter
Acronym ANALCO
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
A great problem when using gas analysis data based in off-line gas analyzers for controlling the gas extraction system is the long time delays associated
with the measurements.
The objective of this project is a development of dynamic models of the gas extraction system to optimise existing control systems and investigate
alternative systems for an on-line measurement of the concentration of COx and O2.
With this control it could act over the OG system: deciding to send the gas to the torch or gasometer, depending on the proportion of CO, CO2 and O2, and
the development of blow control schemes based on gas analysis.

Title: Improving phosphorus refining
Acronym IMPHOS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Phosphorus removal is required to produce high quality BOS steel. However, current phosphorus process control strategies are based on end point steadystate models, which do not account for the intensely dynamic processes that are involved in phosphorus removal. Consequently, there are often large
variations in heat-by-heat performance indicating that existing control schemes for phosphorus are not secure and should be improved to avoid production
interrupts and reduce flux costs.
The project aims at improving current phosphorous refining strategies by introducing additional dynamic aspects into the control scheme including
enhanced slag formation practices and advanced lance control routines.
If successful, the project would be expected to result in improved conservation of resources (slag-making fluxes and lower temperature losses), and a
positive environmental impact (reduced BOS slag generation).

Title: Optimisation of sampling at liquid steel state and correlative inclusions assessment of liquid steel for the improvement of
high performance steel grades production process
Acronym SOPLIQS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Development of high performance steel grades conducts to more and more severe cleanliness / inclusions populations requirements. Steelmakers have a
real need to control during steelmaking inclusions populations at the liquid state. It was established that inclusions present in liquid steel samples are not
often representative of inclusions actually present in the liquid - moreover solid– steel. In this way wrong cleanliness evaluations conduct to quality troubles
and customers' claims. The benefits estimated for total European steels production is 32M €/year. So, proposal's aims are to determine the most
representative liquid steel sampling parameters to optimise the correlative inclusions populations assessment.

Title: Energy and productivity optimised EAF stainless steel making by adjusted slag foaming and chemical energy supply
Acronym EPOSS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Objective of the project is to increase energy efficiency and productivity during EAF stainless steel making by slag foaming and adjusted use of all
available energy sources. By means of different slag conditioning techniques and foaming additives foamy slag practise shall be established in dependence
on available injection technologies, tapping procedures and decarburisation requirements resulting from post treatment technology (AOD, VOD). Based on
slag foaming advantages, energy efficiency during EAF stainless steel production shall be increased by using the mainly exothermic chemical reactions,
higher power input by high impedance operation and adjusted utilisation of both chemical and electrical energy in dependence on melting time. The
proposed research is in complete accordance with the strategy priority “Direct and alternative input of energy in the electric arc furnace” and is specially
supported by the ESTEP Working Group 1 “Profit“.

Title: Resource-saving operation and control of stainless steel refining in VOD and AOD process
Acronym OPCONSTAINLESS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of the project is to improve the operation and control of stainless steel refining within the VOD and the AOD process with respect to the
main metallurgical operations. This shall be achieved by detailed investigations with CFD based process models, and by application of dynamic models for
on-line observation and control of the process. Furthermore a detailed investigation of operation parameters with emphasis on the slag behaviour shall be
performed, and new VOD operation practices regarding lance injection of scale FeO and EAF slag with high chromium contents shall be developed.
Expected benefits are a reduced consumption of alloys, reducing agents, slag formers and process gases. Stainless steel production will be optimised
regarding energy consumption and amount of slag to be deposited or recycled. The well-aimed control of decarburisation reaction will reduce the risk of
potentially dangerous steel and slag overflow.

Title: Cost and energy effective management of EAF with flexible charge material mix
Acronym FLEXCHARGE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Objective of the project is the set-up of an innovative methodology to manage in an effective way the EAF charged with the variable materials mix
guarantying the required steel quality, the cost to produce crude steel and the environmental constrains having in mind the volatility of scrap quality-price
ratio and the pressures arising from CO2 trading legislation. Thus the projects will address the issues of maximising the use of low quality scrap in the
charge mix, will investigate the use of the scrap substitutes, like Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) and Hot Briquette Iron (HBI), as alternative to high quality
scrap and will optimize the energy input required to melt down the charged materials.
The development of new operation procedures and control tools will be supported by especially designed laboratory, pilot and industrial tests.

Title: Improvement of ladle stirring to minimise slag emulsification and reoxidation during alloying and rinsing
Acronym StImprove
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this research project is to improve steel metallurgy and quality by minimising slag emulsification and reoxidation during stirring in
secondary metallurgy. Advanced monitoring of stirring processes will be applied to assess their impact on necessary metallurgical applied operation.
In addition, the duration of melt treatments will be shortened, the dissolution of alloying additions will be improved and the amount of ladle stirring gas will
be reduced. Interaction of stirring process parameters with steel metallurgy will be clarified. This will allow to perform dynamic stirring throughout the
whole necessary treatment time.

Title: Upgrading and utilisation of residual iron oxide materials for hot metal production
Acronym URIOM
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The proposed project focuses on development of innovative pyrometallurgical technologies for recycling especially of residuals from stainless steel making.
One part deals with the briquetting of stainless steel residuals and direct recycling into the EAF. The other part deals with the development of the
innovative inductive heated coke bed technology as a key process for recycling especially stainless steel residuals in parallel to the EAF with a complete
recovery of alloying elements for steelmaking, zinc for non ferrous metals use and slag usable for building applications as an approach for a zero waste
technology in stainless steel making. To lower the electric energy demand the inductive heated coke bed shall be charged by molten material as well as
preheated coke. For the experimental investigations an existing flash melter shall be used for charging the molten material. The charged coke shall be
treated in a special coke preheater. The inductive heated coke bed technology seems not only to be coupled with a flash melting unit but also applicable to
the low shaft furnace/cupola process like that one operated by TKS for steel works residues. This will broaden the application of the process to stainless
steel residual processing. The need for agglomerated material for the shaft furnace process is the link to the briquetting investigations planned within this
project. The proposed research is in complete accordance with the priority “sustainable use of resources” of the Strategic Research Agenda of ESTEP with
high relevance for the RFCS programme and is specially supported by the ESTEP Working Group 1 “Profit“.

Title: Development of steel grade related slag systems with low reoxidation potential in ladle and optimised ladle glaze technique
for improving steel cleanliness
Acronym STEELCLEANCONTROL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The technical objective of this project is to investigate the interaction between deoxidised steel (low- and high-alloyed steel grades) melts and oxidic
materials during the process of ladle metallurgy. Finally steel grade specific slag systems and the ladle glaze technique will be optimised in view of low
reoxidation potentials and a low tendency for uncontrolled inclusion formation. In this way steel cleanliness can be improved through lower amounts of nonmetallic inclusions, which has a beneficial impact on productivity and quality of steel products. The formation and modification of inclusion by ladle slags,
ladle lining and ladle glaze will be studied in detail. These aspects will be investigated on selected steel grades both under process and laboratory
conditions. Through the close cooperation between industrial partners and universities optimised slag compositions and treatment strategies will be
developed and verified in practice. European steelworks will finally profit from these project results.

Title: Innovative methodology for through process inclusion level forecasting of engineering steel
Acronym INCLUSION
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project objective is to develop a tool of "intelligent manufacturing" based on statistical inclusion analysis.
The intelligent manufacturing is based on the correlation among the inclusion taken during steelmaking route and inclusions on the product and this fact will
allow to control the subsequent rolling operation, helping the operator to make the best coupling of inclusion characteristics and leel of rolling.
The statistical methodology selected is the extreme value statistic, which allows the description of an inclusion family in terms of maximum defect
measured.

Title: Optimised production of low C and N steel grades via the electric steelmaking route
Acronym LOWCNEAF
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The main objective of the project is to develop a through-process control strategy for a reliable, simultaneous achievement of low steel carbon and nitrogen
levels within electric steelmaking under minimum energy and material costs with optimal productivity. This shall be achieved by investigation of relevant
operational parameters and modelling of pick-up and removal of C and N within all aggregates of the process route. Regarding EAF, focus will be laid on
the use of alternative
iron materials (pig iron, DRI/HBI) to lower C and N contents at tapping. The control system will be applied on-line at five electrical steelmaking plants
with different process routes and aggregates (EAF,LF,VD) for various steel products (wire, beam blanks, sectionals, SBQ, slabs).

Title: Control of slag and refining conditions in the BOF
Acronym BATHFOAM
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Control of slag foaming the BOF has always been problematic. With increased pressure on process yields and productivity, combined with increased
demands for accurate control of refining in the process it is important to develop a process control tool that can control slag foaming and thus consistently
achieve the
optimum performance from both a perspective of slopping control as well as refining in the BOF.
The project aims to use static and dynamic process data from many sources in the process and relate them to process performance by using advanced
statistical analysis tools. This will be used, combined with data from analytical models for the BOF refining reactions, to develop a process control system
that pro-actively controls slag formation in the BOF.
If successful the project should result in improved productivity and process yields, as well as reduced flux consumption and dust emissions from the plants.

Title: Direct casting of small sections beam-blanks thanks to meniscus free casting technology
Acronym Beam-blank MFC
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The aim of this demonstration project is to show, through pilot trials, that beam blanks for the production of small sections can be cast continuously close
to the final shape using Meniscus Free Casting technology. The pilot caster at Arcelor Research will be used to optimise the process in terms of
productivity, production costs and quality.
Substantial savings are expected for the casting operations due to streamlined process and the simplicity of the installation. Additional cost reductions of at
least 15 €/ton are expected for the rolling operations due to hot charging and the reduction of the number of rolling passes. The installations associated with
the
process will be very compact, leading to further savings on investment costs.

Title: Real-time intelligent diagnostics and optimisation of reheating furnace performance
Acronym SMARTFIRE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The overall project aims are to improve reheating furnace operation, maintenance and product quality by improved diagnostics, monitoring and control of
process parameters.
This will be achieved by developing an innovative flame analysis system and determination of combustion and furnace diagnostics using databases and
statistical and physical models. These approaches will be amalgamated into a new prototype diagnostics, warning and suggestion (DWS) system. The DWS
methodology will be used in at least two partner countries to optimise reheating
furnace operation and reheated stock. Thus, the competitiveness and efficiency of the EU steel industry will be improved.

Title: New strategies for clogging prevention for improved productivity and steel quality
Acronym CLOGGING
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Clogging is still a problem to solve. To achieve a break through in this project a new basic knowledge will be elaborated as a basis for the development of
new strategies for clogging prevention like new feeding system designs in conjunction with innovative gas injection, prediction and control of clogging.
This will be done in an integrated approach concerning chemical and physical phenomena in conjunction with an extensive operational data base using
advanced or newly developed investigation and measurement methods.
The obtained results will be verified by operational data and trials with a view to a final implementation of the new strategies in the operational praxis.

Title: Enhanced as-cast product quality by optimised mould taper design
Acronym SOLIMOULD
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The aim of this project is to investigate how the taper in combination with shrinkage, operational parameters and other mould conditions (wear and
distortion) affects as-cast product quality for different semis formats, namely
billets and slabs. The achievement of this objective will provide crucial information for the optimisation of mould design and operational parameters,
looking for the as-cast product quality improvement. Plant trials will be supported by mathematical modelling concerning early solidification and the
interaction between solidified shell and mould.
This is a collaborative work between Sidenor I+D, Centro Sviluppo Materiali (CSM), Corus UK Ltd and Betriebsforschungsinstitut (BFI).

Title: Optimising slag film properties and determination of operational windows for lubrication, mould heat transfer and shell
formation
Acronym SLAGFILMOWL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this project is to optimise the lubrication within the mould and heat transfer from the shell to the mould via the definition of operational
windows for the mould powder and numerical simulation of fluid flow at the meniscus and the effects of stresses and deformation on the forming shell. The
operational windows will be defined through a correlation of slag and slag film properties, observed surface defects, caster and casting operational
parameters and numerical simulation and model predictions. Achievement of the objectives will result in an improvement in as-cast surface quality.

Title: Innovative tundish management for final steel thermal and chemical adjustment
Acronym TUNDJUST
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The research aim is to found possible/feasible actions on tundish casting for thermal/chemical adjustments:
- thermal heating via chemical reactions at bath-insulating powder interface;
- steel composition adjustment where mixing conditions are favourable;
As a matter of fact, typical drawbacks when performing in ladle these metallurgy operations are:
- time lag before tapping can increase bath re-oxidation affecting steel cleanliness ;
- alloying elements re-oxidised, are lost in inclusions with failure of target composition.
The work, carried out by CSM (Co-ordinator), CAS, BFI and KEP, is supported by modelling tools (CFD /physical), laboratory tests and operational plant
trials on carbon and stainless steels.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this research proposal is to extend significantly the area of knowledge of the precipitation of nitrides, carbides and complex particles
during solidification and cooling of microalloyed steel grades and to investigate their effect on as-cast surface quality. The proposed work will include the
investigations into the effect of the solidification and cooling rates on precipitation, strain induced precipitation of particles and their interaction with strain
induced ferrite and modified steel chemistries that result in fewer surface defects and reduced microstructural banding. To achieve the overall objective, the
approach to the project is threefold; industrial plant based, numerical modelling and laboratory and pilot plant based.

Title: Quality improvement by metallurgical optimised stock temperature evolution in the reheating furnace including
microstructure feedback from the rolling mill
Acronym OPTHEAT
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The overall project aims are to optimise product quality, reheating furnace operation and material yield by improved monitoring and control of the reheating
furnace and rolling mill.
This will be achieved by heating according to new heating curves optimised with respect to the microstructure of the steel, handling of stops and changes of
steel grades in the rolling mill. The new heating curve will be developed through a combination of laboratory experiments, industrial trials and theoretical
modelling approach for the microstructure, stock temperature and energy consumption.
The new heating strategies will be implemented in four partner countries to optimise the furnace and rolling mill operation. Thus, the competitiveness and
efficiency of the EU steel industry will be improved.

Title: CO2 reduction in reheating furnaces
Acronym CO2RED
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this project is to demonstrate the capability of new technology, such as regenerative and oxyfuel combustion system based on flameless
oxidation to allow a step change in environmental impact of steel reheating furnaces reducing at the same time the CO2 and NOx emissions in comparison
with
conventional furnaces equipped with central recuperator and flame burners.
To reach this goal regenerative and oxyfuel combustion systems will be tested in pilot and industrial furnaces and investigated with the support of CFD
combustion modelling. The effect of new combustion systems on the product quality will also be analysed.
The project will give recommendation for the best practice to install and operate with high reliability the new combustion systems in reheating furnaces for
different type of gas gaseous fuels with high reliability

Title: Improvement to steel cleanness, castability and surface quality through the application of magneto-hydrodynamics during
pouring and solidification
Acronym MAGNETOHYDRO
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this research is to improve steel cleanness, including improvement to the size and distribution of non-metallics in the as-cast semi to
improve downstream processing and final properties, using conventional single M-EMS and modern multimode M-EMS and technologies to control
segregation. In addition, the project is aimed at the optimisation of M-EMS parameters to both minimise powder/slag entrapment and reduce power
consumption for both long and flat products. The novel application of electromagnetics to control the meniscus and flow in the SEN will also be
investigated. To support the industrial trials, there will be an extensive programme of pilot plant casts and an extensive programme of numerical and
physical modelling.

Title: Innovative non-contact, non-destructive sensors for automatic detection of surface and internal defects in hot
continuously cast products
Acronym NDTCASTING
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The quality of slabs is the basis of good quality for all other steel products in the downstream production process.
The automatic on-line detection and logging of surface, subsurface and internal defects for the controlling and optimization of the scarfing process and for
use during continuous casting is important. An EMAT/EMAT Phased-Array-System and a LASER/EMAT-System will be developed to detect these
defects. The Conoscopic-Holography-System can currently only find repetitive longitudinal defects and this system needs to be further developed. The
control of downstream processes for tracing steel through the mill will be also bringing big advantages to the steel industry.

Title: Mastering billet casting through integration of innovative mould sensoring and on line billet surface quality monitoring
Acronym MASTERBILLET
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The aim of the proposal is the development of two equipments with innovative sensors able to improve the control of casting conditions for each billet. The
first instrument is for the measure of the liquid steel level in the mould and the layer thickness of casting powders; the second is for the measure of the
thermal field of high part mould. Associating them to the automatic inspection of the surface of each billet and appropriate elaboration will allow the
definition of the rules for rigorous control of the casting conditions. The system will recognize the anomalous casting conditions and will indicate to the
operational worker the actions to carry out in order to correct the found anomalies to guarantee a as
cast product of better quality. The attended results are a grinding decreasing, energy savings and an improvement of the working environment.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project objective is to develop active tundish process by applying tailored covering slag with high capacity to efficiently absorb macro- and
microinclusions from different steels. Thorough investigation of interfacial phenomena controlling inclusion removal and dissolution into tundish slag are
performed to guide the slag section.
Optimized flow patterns for inclusion removal in steady state and transient conditions are studied by water modelling and CFD simulation. Refractory
materials are evaluated in accordance with the steel and inclusion chemistry and quality requirements.
Steel grades are selected for theoretical examination and experimental trials, particularly to reduce cleanness problems and increase sequence length.

Acronym DEFFREE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective is to generate a new modelling based optimization and quality control system for continuous casting. The new concept can be used for offline process design and optimization but also for on-line quality control. The traditional concepts have several drawbacks and it is dif-ficult to find a
comprehensive process optimization and design system. The new concept is based on fundamental features obtained from mathematical models and on
calculated safety ranges for them. The outcome of this approach provides steel industry with a new innovative ap-proach for controlling the continuous
casting process and therefore achieving higher outcome, quality and yield.

Title: Reduction in surface cracking in as-cast low sulphur and calcium treated steels
Acronym LSSEMIQUAL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this proposal is to attempt to understand why certain low and very low sulphur content and calcium treated steels are more prone to
longitudinal broad face, transverse broad face and corner and network type cracking in the as-cast surface. From this understanding the objective is to
develop the casting practice and/or ‘tune’ the steel chemistry to ensure defect free semis with the consequence of improved hot charging capability and/or
reduced surface
rectification requirements. To achieve the overall objective there are several sub-objectives, each designed to complement the programme and these form
the Work Packages.

Acronym RFS-CR-03012
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
1. As a researcher, it would be profitable to learn from the experience of working in one of Europe's leading private-sector institutes for applied research
and development in the field of steel technology. This involves gain knowledge with training activities on the data-warehouse, control, data analysis, etc. of
the processes’ pilot plants related to my research line during my thesis production, in fields closed to the profile straightening.
2. Take part of the strategies’ design to intend to improve the processes concerning the Project, changing the present configuration based (along with other
parameters) on the result obtained in the numerical simulations required, in a continue feedback (testwork-numerical simulation).
3. Knowledge generation to be consolidated in papers. Our intend is the publication of article between the Universidad de La Rioja and BFI from the
results obtained during the stay period. The Universidad de La Rioja and its candidate are committed to that publications or other information disclosure
wont infringe possible intellectual property rights and wont compromise the protection (such as patentability) of any results, inventions or know-how from

Title: Control of scale during steel processing
Acronym Scale Control
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Scale is a perennial cause of defects on rolled products, either directly or as a result of persistent ghost marks. This project builds on previous work to
determine optimum processing conditions for special steels (notably ferritic and austenitic stainless steels, micro-alloy strip steels and plate grades), by
characterising furnace scale, residual scale after hydraulic descaling and scale present after primary rolling. A simplified empirical scale growth model will
facilitate interpolation between different steel types and furnace atmospheres. An FE model of scale growth and deformation will predict scale development
during reheating, descaling and rolling. The model work will be tested against laboratory and pilot plant trials.

Title: Width-adaptable optimized controlled-cooling systems (WACOOLs) for the production of innovative advanced HSS
grades and the study of strip shape changes while cooling
Acronym WACOOL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Efficient production of Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) require important and parallel improvement of the rolling process and especially of the
cooling systems.
The microstructures and the resultant mechanical properties of steel depend on the cooling patterns and the steel chemistry.
The prediction of TTT-diagrams and other curves obtained from continuous cooling required for planning the industrial production of AHSS grades will be
performed.
Symmetrically or asymmetrically controllable as well as edge-masking types of width-adaptable and water-efficient laminar-flow cooling systems will be
developed and implemented at 3 HSMs.
To complement the strip-cooling & transformation phenomena, an investigation of the strip shape changes, by means of both mathematical modeling and
AI techniques, all along the cooling path between finishing mill and down coiler will be undertaken with a view to reducing rejects.

Title: Damage resistant and roughness retaining work rolls for cold rolling and temper rolling
Acronym TOPROLLS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The ‘optimal work roll’ for cold rolling and temper rolling depends on mill-specific factors (mill lay-out, rolling practices, product mix). A concerted
approach is proposed to investigate and physically describe the evolution of roll damage, residual stresses and roll surface roughness during rolling, taking
into account the synergy between roll-related and mill-specific factors. A decision tool to tailor roll properties to the mill, including the aspect of
environment protection, will be developed. Prototypes of rolls with superior properties will be developed and tested. Simultaneously, roll inspection
methods and procedures will be improved to eliminate the safety risk of exploding rolls.

Title: Optimisation of final plate flatness by set-up coordination for subsequent manufacturing processes
Acronym FINALPLATEFLATNESS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Nowadays the flatness performance of plate manufacturing lines is still tackled in terms of enhanced local flatness of the plates in the line.
The aims of this project are to optimise local flatness approaches and to progress from this basis by taking the flatness requirements of the subsequent
production quantitatively into account in form of a co-ordinated flatness set-up system.
This system will integrate all sub models including models of transfer conditions from process stage to process stage and perform a line through process
flatness prediction.
Based on this a line set-up optimiser connecting local stage rules by a line optimisation strategy will generate the best fitting actions relevant to the
evolution of flatness.

Title: Advanced width and camber control
Acronym AWiCCo
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Aim of the AWiCCo project is the optimisation of the hot rolled strip geometry regarding width and camber.
For this a modern shape control system shall be developed. One component will be a process comprehensive (roughing and finishing mill) width control,
taking all regulating possibilities influencing the width into account. The second component will be a camber control for the roughing mill. In this
connection a new side guiding system for a continuous control of the camber and wedge generation shall
be designed. An interaction analysis will show the interdependencies of those controllers and the possibility of merging.
An improved finished product concerning the desired finished strip geometry shall be achieved.

Title: Controlled hydraulic damper to prevent chatter in cold rolling
Acronym Anti-chatter CHD
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project aims at installing and testing an innovative mechanical device, called Controlled Hydraulic Damper, to prevent 3rd octave chatter in cold
rolling of thin steel strip. It would provide adequate passive damping to the stands, so that the roll-ability limits due to chatter (rolling speed, achievable
strip thickness or maximal reduction) are widened. The proposal includes vibration analysis, numerical simulation, design and construction of the device,
installation and validation of the anti-chatter device in industrial conditions.
Savings of 8.5 M€/year can be expected for the European production of cold rolled packaging steel.

Title: Roll mark detection on the tandem mill
Acronym ROLLMARK
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Roll marks created by the cold rolling are tiny defects only revealed by a manual stone brushing. But enhanced by the coating they create unacceptable
defects on the galvanised or painted surface. Benefits would results from automatic detection early after tandem mill, saving about 9 M €/y (defects, claims).
Today no surface inspection system is able to reach the goal. Human inspection is performed after stone brushing on a limited area of strip. The project
aims to develop a technique suitable to detect on-line roll marks at tandem mill exit and assess its detection performances in industrial environment.

Title: Controlling wear and surface cleanliness during cold rolling
Acronym LOWWEAR
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Excessive iron fines generation during rolling is of nuisance, both in the mill and in subsequent production steps. The aim of the project is to control the
iron fines and oil residues generated during a cold rolling process. To achieve that objective, research is focused on three poles:
• Establish full understanding on the underlying wear mechanisms.
• Determine the parameters that influence dirt generation during rolling and capture the quantitative effects in a physically based model.
• Development of an online measurement method to determine the amount of generated dirt.
The expected returns are important cost savings in the mill, increase in batch-annealing capacity and a general increase in client satisfaction.

Title: Using asymmetrical rolling for increased production and improved material properties
Acronym ASYMMROLL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This project will investigate the possibilities to use asymmetrical rolling in existing mills in order to decrease loads, increase reductions and improve strip
geometry and material properties. The project involves tests in pilot and industrial mills, FE-modelling and metallurgical analysis. Models for rolling forces,
rolling torques and long bow will be developed since it is needed for the pass schedule design.
Different asymmetrical designs will be investigated such as single/twin drive, different sized work rolls.
The level of shear for different geometries will be investigated in laboratory scale. Microstructure will be evaluated both for laboratory test and full scale
trials.

Title: Laser treatment of profiled rolls
Acronym LASERHARD
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
A laser heat source can melt a surface layer, up to 1 mm in depth, typically less than the abrasive wear depth for a rolling campaign. Due to the rapid
cooling a significant increase in the hardness is produced without affecting the substrate metallurgy. A protective layer can be so applied on selected areas
of a roll as part of the dressing procedure. This project would develop adequate laser based strategies to treat profiled rolls, determining the optimum
applications (weld depths, speeds and areas) and applicable roll grades, and additionally, determine the efficiency of the process in technical and
economical terms.

Title: New cooling techniques for enhanced roll bite lubrication during cold rolling of high strength steels and thin packaging
steels
Acronym OPTCOOLUB
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The current trend of cold tandem mills of combining higher rolling speed, larger reduction, harder steel grades significantly increases problems of cooling
and lubrication degradation.
This project aims at improving cooling performances to make better lubricant properties in cold rolling. Physical models associated to tests of new cooling
techniques (combination of different types or arrangements of nozzles, high turbulence cooling techniques) will be derived in practical recommendations to
improve cold mills productivity and product quality.
The expected benefits for the European steel industry are estimated to 15M €/year through the possibility to achieve higher rolling speeds and reductions, to
decrease oil consumption (by 5%) and oil cost (by 15%), and to reduce water consumption and recycled coolant quantities (positive environmental aspect).

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project is aimed at an improved understanding of the evolution of microstructure, material properties, internal stress/strain fields, flatness and
squareness, during hot rectification and cooling of plates and sections, establishing the sensitivities of product condition at entry to cold rectification. Hot
rectification and cooling processes will be optimised to achieve required mechanical and dimensional properties, thereby reducing or eliminating the need
for cold rectification. Warm rectification will also be considered as a mean to increase throughput and reduce mechanical work on finished products.
Regime maps will be developed covering key products and grades, and selectively tested in industrial conditions.

Title: Minimised yield losses by innovative integrated edge-drop, width and shape control based on soft-sensor technology and
new actuators in cold rolling mills
Acronym EDGECONTROL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This project will bring European steel producers a major step forward to delivering near rectangular cold strips to their final customers and thus minimising
their own yield losses by avoiding/reducing side trimming and strip breaks on critical and highly demanding products. Potential actuators to control edge
drop and width in cold rolling will be evaluated combining innovative (i.e. portable and integrated) measurement systems on industrial mills, (3D modelbased) soft-sensors for online estimation, and model predictive control. The expected benefits for the European steel industry are estimated to an average of
20 M€/year1 through the possibility to produce strips with tight geometrical tolerances and to reduce yield, with positive environmental aspect.

Title: Development of an innovative hybrid procedure for combining tension-levelling and skin pass rolling
Acronym Hyprocom
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Main objective is the development of an innovative strip finishing procedure by combining tension levelling and skin pass rolling into one production step
and thus to shorten the process chain. During former RFCS-projects [R1, R2] it could be proved that the mechanical characteristics of strip material mainly
adjusted during the skin pass rolling process are possible to be achieved as well during a pure tension levelling process by variation of applied tension and
bending load. The realisation of the desired surface texture requires an additional superposed deformation under pressure introduced simultaneously in
those strip sections where the yield strength of the material already is met by the applied tension-bending procedure. Using the new facility it will be
possible to adjust material mechanical and surface roughness properties independently. Thus the new technique fundamentally contributes to the common
development to require steel grades with highest surface quality and simultaneous highest available deformation resources.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The general aim of this pilot and demonstration program is to demonstrate that the cooling of big grooved work rolls can strongly be improved by the use
of advanced cooling technology and a selective cooling strategy.
The main objectives are to improve the performance of big grooved rolls and to reduce the required coolant flow and pressure. By this to increase the
production rate and to reduce energy cost, raw materials and recycled flow rate.
The new selective cooling systems will be based on preliminary trials, performed in the framework of the RFCS research program “Effective work roll
cooling”[1].

Title: Acidfree strip descaling process
Acronym AFRESCA
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Scale, mainly formed during hot processing, must be removed before further processing. Up to now the necessary pickling process based on the use of
acids and chemical treatment is timeconsuming and often creates a bottleneck between hot and cold rolling. Further on the use of pickling liquids is highly
dangerous for people working in the plant and the environment.
Combining different technologies as measurement of scale thickness, high-dynamic control of scale-breaking, monitoring of scale properties and
simultaneously controlling mechanical descaling using abrasives in closed loop leads to acid-free de-scaling of strip with sustainable preserving of people,
plant and the environment.

Acronym WINROLLS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This project objective is to improve the robustness of the rolling process in the roughing mill by decreasing the roll consumption and increasing the process
reliability. A first axis will be the observation of the working roll during its lifetime and the comparison of observations with models to understand the
degradation mechanisms. Then, the influence of process parameters such as roll cooling and roll preparation before rolling will be investigated to define the
optimized rolling
conditions. The final axis will be the development of an optimized new work roll grade based on the specifications obtained from the other axis.

Title: Improvement of the internal wall surface of seamlesss tubes by optimisation and anticipating management of the mandrel
bar operation and supervision of the internal tool process
Acronym OPTITUBE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This project aims to optimise the internal wall surface of seamless tubes. Systems to measure internal tool condition and process forces will provide a
database for correlation analysis and on-line prediction-based processing and anticipating maintenance. Hybrid correlation & Finite Element Models will
predict the internal wall surface quality based on internal tool condition evolution and tool process parameters. New wear resistant tool materials/coatings
and enhanced process lubrication will be introduced to optimise internal tool surface and process parameters. A supervision system will integrate the online information and an anticipating strategy to handle internal tool processes and maintenance
proposals e. g. of the time to replace the tool. The system will be demonstrated at a push bench tube line of Benteler.

Title: Global adaptive model for prediction, characterization and damping of vibrations in hot strip mills
Acronym CHATTER
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This project proposes a novel global approach to solve vibrations problems during hot rolling of strip, detecting and eliminating conditions that drive to
their appearance and developing control strategies for their effective damping.
The main approach is to develop models that evaluate the probability of appearance of vibrations at any stand according to rolling conditions foreseen by
process models for the next bar to enter the mill. If probability is high, process models will be told to generate a different mill set up that changes the
conditions of those stands. Additional measure and damping strategies will complete the strategy.

Title: Optimised productivity and quality of pickling by on-line control of pickled surface
Acronym HIGH-PICK
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
To attain a complete elimination of the oxide from the steel surface is an obvious quality request of pickling. However the overpickling i.e. the attack of
iron by the acid solution is also detrimental in terms of productivity and quality. So reaching the exact “just pickled” state is an important issue. That is
precisely the objective of this project.
It will have a multidisciplinary approach:
- Development / adaptation of a number of sensors: to monitor the strip surface, follow the process and assess the aggressiveness of the acid solution
- On-line tests in several industrial lines
- Statistical analysis of overall pickling phenomena.
All the data will be used to define the conditions assuring optimised operation i.e. full pickling and no or minimal overpickling. Finally the benefits will be
analysed and the transfer conditions will be prepared.

Title: New wiping techniques to produce efficiently the suitable coating layers at high speed in the hot dip galvanising process
Acronym Advanced Wiping
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project deals with the control of the coating weight in the hot dip coating process. The current wiping technology used the gas knife system is limiting
with regards to production of low coating weights and the line speeds at which they can be achieved.
The development of new wiping techniques should enable a high line speed with a high flexibility on the final coating thickness. Hence, to overcome the
current bottleneck of the galvanising line and so to pave the way for increased productivity, to extend possible coating range and high mastering of the
production cost.

Title: Space efficient curing methods and simulation-aided coating engineering for extending lifetime of aesthetic coil coatings
Acronym SPACE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This proposal is focused on steel use and the possibilities of space efficient curing methods and structure – property relationships as tools for development
of complex coil coatings for exterior architectural applications.
The desired properties are new aesthetic surfaces, anti-graffiti properties, anti-bacterial properties, improved scratch resistance and dual-cure systems for
improved combination of hardness and formability.
Overall objectives are:
• To define working range for each curing method and the corresponding coating systems (UV, IR, NIR and thermal curing as reference).
• To work out unique performance profiles specific for different polymer and curing chemistries.
• To develop 3-layer coil coatings

Title: Development and evaluation of coatings and surface conditions on steel for antibacterial and easy to clean properties
Acronym DECOBIOF
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Microbial growth in steel components may cause corrosion, odour, staining, and in certain cases serious healthy problems.
Today, there is a special interest in what it is called “hygienic surfaces” with refers not only to a surface that provides anti-microbial activity, but also to a
surface which looks clean or even with a self cleaning behaviour.
These properties can be achieved with specific coatings or via surface substrate modification.
The development and evaluation of hygienic surfaces on steel for antibacterial and easy to clean properties is the main objective of this proposal.

Title: Improvement of line productivity and of immersed hot dip galvanizing roll lifetime by dross build-up-control
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The high standard of hot dip coating quality for automotive and industry markets requires no contact between dross and steel sheet. Improvement in terms
of coating quality and line productivity can be achieved by decreasing the progressive adhesion of dross on immersed rolls.
The objective of this project is to increase the immersed hot dip galvanizing roll lifetime of 30% and consequently line productivity and coating quality by
controlling dross build-up phenomena.
After identifying on industrial lines the main parameters of dross build-up, some laboratory simulations and modelling work will help us to understand the
mechanism explaining dross build-up and to propose, evaluate and test some industrial solutions to avoid it.

Title: Novel annealing procedures for improving HDG of HSS
Acronym NOVANNEAL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The inert oxides of modern high strength steels are a major problem for hot dip galvanizing. Especially interesting from the industrial point of view are
concepts to avoid surface oxide formation by enhancing internal oxidation by increasing the dew point. The idea of the project is to investigate simpler to
apply alternatives to these existing concepts, as for example the lowering of the hydrogen content in
the forming gas. Other questions involve whether prediction tools for wettability can be developed by completing the research recently made and how far
wettability and adhesion of the zinc coating to the steel are correlated.

Title: Development of a waviness measurement for coated products
Acronym WAVIMETER
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Waviness is an important parameter as, if it is above defined limits, the steel user does not accept the product because it causes scrap or bad quality in the
further processing. But, except for high glossy surfaces, it is mostly not eye visible before painting. So, an on-line measuring system is of great interest for
it will measure the waviness not only at the head or tail of coil but all along it.
The new system will be developed on the base of CRM on-line microscope integrating high speed components, stitching algorithms and multiprocessor
implementation.
The project will cover the validation of the technique in laboratory and in industry. Industrial partners will be deeply involved in the industrial validation
but also in the analysis of the database so constituted. This database, regrouping waviness measurement and production parameters, will be analysed to
define guidelines to improve the process and so the product quality.

Title: Improvement of productivity on hot dip galvanizing line by decreasing strip vibrations in gas jets cooling system
Acronym Stripvibrations reduction
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The high standard of hot dip coating quality requires a good stability of the strip particularly in the cooling tower (Fig.1) after the zinc bath, where the strip
is excited by gas jets cooling equipments. The stakes are estimated at about 3 to 4 M €/line/year, what represents a gain of 75 to 100 M€/year for the
concerned European lines. The objective of this project is to increase the line productivity and coating quality by decreasing strip vibrations, not with new
external stabilizing actuators but by the improvement of the existing cooling technology.
The pilot project is divided in three working axes:
- Analysis of strip vibrations on the cooling tower of Arcelor Steel Belgium industrial line;
- Opitmisation of the influent parameters on the experimental cooling device of Arcelor Research plant;
- Installation and optimisation of the improved proposed solution in industrial conditions.

Title: Microbiologically induced corrosion of steel structures in port environment: improving prediction and diagnosis of ALWC
Acronym MICSIPE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Some European port authorities are currently concerned by a localised and accelerated corrosion, called Accelerated Low Water Corrosion (ALWC)
occurring on steel waterfront structures. High corrosion rates induced can shorten drastically service life of the structure or lead to failure. Solutions to
mitigate this
corrosion are available but maintenance of these structures still remains costly.
Previous studies showed that ALWC is microbiologically induced; however mechanisms and bacteria involved have not been entirely determined until now.
This project aims at developing diagnostic tools and a risk assessment method for industrial end users to predict and assess ALWC by using advanced
molecular methods.

Title: Steady reactivity in hot-dip coating by direct deposit of iron oxides
Acronym FERRIGAL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The inert oxides of resistance steel grades are a major problem for hot dip galvanizing. Especially interesting from the industrial point of view are concepts
to avoid surface oxide formation of alloying elements. One approach is to modify the annealing procedure prior to hot dip galvanising. This proposal
suggests a much simpler and easy to apply procedure: to deposit a thin iron oxide layer, e.g. by a simple dipping deposition, as barrier against segregation.
The iron oxide is reduced during the annealing and serves then as a reactive surface excellently wettable by the liquid zinc.

Title: Novel externally enhanced pickling improvement for short / mid term
Acronym NEXTEP
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
At long term, it is expected that process improvements in hot-rolling will decrease the oxide layer and as a consequence pickling of carbon steel should be
in the future either strongly reduced or fully eliminated. However at short/mid term pickling remains a necessary operation that constitutes a bottleneck in
strip production. This project aims at boosting techniques to be applied at short term to enable pickling line to cope with new difficult-to-pickle grades, to
reduce
the energy intensity and the environmental impact. Different routes will be analysed in laboratory, namely alternating current processing, reactive operation
and remote cavitation.
Pilot line tests will be performed in optimised conditions. Main results will be the selection and full characterisation (operative window and process
performances) of candidate solutions for industrial application.

Title: Properties improvement by stress-assisted control of the metallurgical transformations for HSS and BH steels
Acronym PISAC
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The nature and the morphology of the microstructures control obviously the mechanical properties of steels especially for HSS and BH steels. The
microstructures are usually obtained changing the temperature, the chemical composition and plastic deformation before phase transformations and
recrystallisation. A complementary fully innovative approach to microstructure control is proposed here.
Applied stress is considered as a new driving force for metallurgical evolutions. Indeed stress effects afford many promising opportunities :
- slow down phase transformation for compression like state,
- accelerate phase transformation for tension like state,
- change the nucleation and so exhibit an impact on structure size (refinement),
- provide a specific spatial orientation (texture).

Title: A novel, high-performance, economic steel concept for linepipe and general structural use
Acronym HIPERC
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Several steel companies have confirmed the potential of a niobium-alloyed, low-carbon steel that combines excellent strength and toughness using both air
and forced cooling following processing for the heavy pipe market. The metallurgical concept is relevant to other market sectors and this project will
develop structure property relationships to define chemical analysis and process route limits of this steel type for a) thick-walled pipe and flat plate, and b)
coiled-plate for both pipe and general use. The results will identify and justify what changes are required to Euronorms for the steel to be available for a
wide range of uses.

Title: Modification of textural distribution in hot rolled stainless steels using asymmetric hot rolling technique
Acronym ASTEX
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The presence of orientation bands in hot rolled strips, due to a columnar solidification structure that can hardly be broken by conventional symmetric hot
rolling, originates in final products of ferritic stainless steels a surface defect known as “ridging” (or roping) and has a detrimental effect on deep drawing
ability.
The aim of this project is to investigate the combined effect of the asymmetric hot rolling (e.g. rolling performed using different roll diameters) and the
influence of deformation given in the final passes on the microstructural and textural distribution in the hot rolled strip and the resultant microstructure
textures and
mechanical properties in final gauge ferritic stainless strips, as a possible solution to the roping phenomena and for improving deep drawing ability.

Title: Toughness and ductility improvement in complex microstructure HSS by means of microstructural parameters
optimization
Acronym MISTRETO
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
High and ultra-high strength- steels with yield strengths above 1000 MPa are now increasingly required by the end users.
However, when increasing the strength, the toughness, ductility and formability are impaired.
Fine and complex multiphase microstructures allow to improve these properties. However, increasing the complexity of the microstructure makes more and
more difficult to identify the microstructural features that are directly related to the mechanical behaviour.
This project aims to improve toughness and ductility of high strength steels with complex bainitic/martensitic microstructures and dual phase steels, by
identifying the microstructure constituents which control these properties.
Models will be developed to predict toughness and ductility behaviour and these will be utilised to aid industrial scale evaluation of new high-strength
steels.

Title: Cold heading quality low-carbon ultra-high strength bainitic steels
Acronym COHEADBAIN
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project aims at developing low-carbon high – strength bainitic steels dedicated for cold heading applications without heat treating operations. Next, to
design the hot rolling routes giving the optimal bainitic microstructure in the wire rod and bar in terms of headability and the final product properties. Cold
headability of commonly used steels is critically sensitive to differences between the mechanical properties of hard (cementite) and soft (ferrite)
microstructure constituents. Therefore, one-phase low-carbon precipitation-strengthened bainitic ferrite is an ideal microstructure for cold working
operations.
On the project completion, semi–finished products of bainitic steel, as well as cold–headed products, will be produced and characterized.

Title: Microstructural quantification of multi phase steels
Acronym MICRO-QUANT
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
A profound understanding of microstructure-properties relationships of Advanced High Strength steels is of crucial importance to a rational development of
these steels. This demands the ability to perform advanced quantification of their complex multi phase microstructures, addressing the full range of
microstructural properties that are relevant to their macroscopic mechanical behaviour. This in turn requires a suit of metallographic procedures, primarily
based on high-resolution electron optical techniques to deal with the submicron microstructural
dimensions. The aim of this project is to develop a range of standardised metallographic procedures dedicated to accurate and reproducible microstructural
quantification of complex multi phase microstructures.

Title: Novel oxide dispersion strengthened steels obtained by high productivity casting process with innovative injection of
suitable special powders
Acronym ODS-STEEL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of the proposal is to develop a new generation of stainless steels obtained by means of dispersion of fine ceramic particles into the metal
matrix. The dispersion is realised during the continuous casting process by injecting suitable developed powders into the melt stream.
These stainless steels will have:
· A modified as-cast structure, as the particles promote an equiaxed solidification by heterogeneous nucleation
· Increased mechanical properties at both room and high temperature
· Properties insensitive to post heat treatments (e.g. welding)
The development activity will be performed on one ferritic, AISI 439 and one austenitic, AISI 301LN stainless grades and on one austenitic special steel.
The project and will take into account the whole manufacturing cycle (casting, hot rolling, annealing, cold rolling and annealing) even though the heart of
the innovation concerns the injection of the ceramic powder into the melt stream during the casting process.
The effect on the mechanical properties, both at room and at high temperature, will be verified by means of appropriate testing for AISI 439. For
AISI301LN, the mechanical properties will only be tested at room temperature.

Title: Cold-rolled complex-phase (CP) steel grades with optimised bendability, stretch-flangeability and anisotropy
Acronym CP-steels
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The improvement of the strength-formability balance of advanced high-strength steels is still a challenging task. This project deals with the relationship
between microstructure and formability – particularly bendability and stretch-flangeability – of cold-rolled complex-phase steels. Therefore, the
transformation behaviour and a wide range of microstructures of such steels will be analysed extensively.
The overall goals of this project are to:
• Identify microstructures with optimised balance between strength, bendability and stretchflangeability.
• Develop guidelines of how to produce the material, by an appropriate alloy design, and well-adjusted processing parameters through several processing
routes, i.e. continuous annealing and hot dip galvannealing.

Title: Avoiding catastrophic corrosion failure of stainless steels
Acronym CORINOX
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Stainless steels are durable, renewable and functional materials for demanding environments, but they have the drawback that pitting, crevice corrosion or
stress corrosion cracking can cause serious failures.
Materials selection today is often based on corrosion tables which are limited to one or two parameters and rarely correspond well to demanding
environments. This project will provide a new methodology for advanced multi-dimensional design curves in terms of temperature, chloride content, pH,
potential, load
and geometry. Field and laboratory testing will be used to evaluate the risk of fast-growing cracks developing in crevices and the safety margin needed for
long-term service.

Title: Martensitic steels with improved properties
Acronym MARTIMPROP
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The maximal strength level for a given steel composition can be realised with the martensitic microstructure. However, as-quenched martensite shows some
major drawbacks such as low formability and low toughness level. Tempering at a relatively low temperature and/or keeping a certain amount of residual
austenite in the microstructure could improve these properties.
Furthermore, an additional low temperature galvanising treatment will provide an additional corrosion resistance to the hot rolled high strength strips. This
development will allow the production of coated ultrahigh strength hot rolled steel (TS higher than 1000 MPa) with superior formability and toughness
level.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Project Actress will investigate the role of austenite strengthening on bainite transformation and therefore on microstructure and product properties.
Showing characteristics that differ from ferrite-pearlite and martensitic transformations, many features of the bainitic transformation are not yet understood
and this project addresses this issue. The research will be focused on modern bainitic microalloyed steels based on those for pipeline applications having a
clear need for optimization. An extensive test programme will involve hot rolling simulation, laboratory and industrial rolling. The experimental approach
will complement metallographic observations, measurements of mechanical properties and accumulated stress; an innovative method of determining
austenite strengthening due to incomplete recrystallisation during rolling.

Title: Hydrogen embrittlement and delayed fracture of advanced multiphase high-strength steels
Acronym CHARGE&LOAD
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Hydrogen embrittlement (HE) of multiphase high-strength steels is investigated. The aim is to gain fundamental understanding of the relation between the
strength, microstructure, hydrogen solubility and diffusion and the mechanisms of HE. Furthermore, the influence of the application environment is studied
by carrying out mechanical testing at different loading conditions (strain rate, temperature, deformation path, etc.). In order to study the strain localisation
and crack formation mechanisms related to HE, in-situ EBSD analysis will be performed in FESEM during plastic deformation. Based on the results,
guidelines to avoid HE will be composed for steel manufacturers and end-users.

Title: Electrical steel with improved "core loss" due increasing of resistivity and low magnetostriction by Al and Si deposition
on surface and subsequent solid state diffusion
Acronym ELEXIR
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
FeSi steels are used as magnetic core in Electrical machines (motors, generators and transformers). An increasing of their electric resistivity would be
advantageous for power loss as heat dissipation during the magnetization process. A research project is proposed, where such increasing of resistivity is
realized by the deposition on the surface of the steel, already at final thickness, of increasing resistivity element such as Si and Al, and subsequent diffusion
annealing to homogenize the distribution of such elements. The increasing of Al and Si concentration will also decrease the magnetostriction related to the
noise produced by transformers.
After a first laboratory phase, where the amount of the diffused elements as well as the microstructure and texture of the substrate are optimized an
industrial feasibility study is proposed in order to understand the actual possibility of industrialization.

Title: Development of methods for the characterization, fracture assessment and life prediction of new high strength steel under
variable temperature operating conditions
Acronym DELOC
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This project aims at understanding the TMF behaviour in advanced steels and weldments by developing fracture mechanics based model. Proposal will
cover a survey of isothermal and thermo-mechanical fatigue (TMF). For new high chrome steels and their weldments the effects of TMF and residual
stresses on defects need to be established, modelled and validated since only limited data and the corresponding modelling of the behaviour for TMF tests
exist. The programme covers a plan for deriving high temperature properties as well as LCF, TMF tests on cracked and uncracked components. The results
and the models will be validated and included in a new life assessment methodology.

Title: Design of bainite in steels from homogeneous and inhomogeneous microstructures using physical approaches
Acronym Bainite Design
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
There are no satisfying empirical models and only physically based models for special steels available. The aim of the project is to find in literature those
formulations of physically based approaches that are most promising. By extensive use of computational thermodynamics and kinetics these approaches
will be placed on a broader basis and will be fitted to new experimental data. So the development of bainitic microstructures in complete groups of modern
bainitic- and cold rolled TRIP-, CP-, and DP-steels can be calculated. The use of the new approach will allow designing bainitic structures for improved
material properties and will give information about basic physical processes governing the formation of bainite.

Title: Bainitic hardenability - Effective use of expensive and strategically sensitive alloying elements in high strength steels
Acronym BAINHARD
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Modern bainitic steels derive their favourable properties, from a mixture of ultra-fine bainitic ferrite with evenly distributed second phases. In order to
obtain the desired bainitic microstructure, alloying elements must be used to separate the bainitic C-curve to make it easier to obtain the desired
microstructure on cooling. The selection of alloying elements is difficult, as bainitic hardenability has not been studied as extensively as martensitic
hardenability. This project will develop a new “bainitic hardenability” model for optimum selection and flexible replacement of expensive or strategically
sensitive alloying elements in high and ultra-high strength steels.

Title: Optimisation of themetallurgical structures and mechanical properties by improving the heat-treatment processes in flat
and long production lines with new setup and control methods
Acronym ESTEP OPTIMET
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this project is to establish best microstructure and mechanical properties of rolled flat and long products to anticipate future market
demands. This will be achieved by optimising the heating and cooling processes in the finishing area, based on offline and online measurement systems,
integrated models for temperature and microstructure evolution combined to predict the material properties , and model-predictive control technologies first
applied in this area. Major cost savings for European steel industry will result from deduction of sampling, lab testing, elimination of reprocessing, and
downgrading due to poor mechanical properties.

Title: 6th European stainless steel conference, science and markets
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The 6th European Stainless Steel Conference, in June 10-13, 2008 in Helsinki, Finland, is devoted both to the scientific aspects of stainless steels and their
market issues. The objectives for the conference is to be a meeting place for specialists, both industry and academic sectors, from the European Union and
abroad, involved in new growing steel applications and in research and development. Meetings between these groups have proved to be a seed for the
fruitful and successful development of manufacturing processes, new steel
grades and new applications for stainless steels. Within this frame the diffusion of results also gained on some research projects funded by the Research
Fund for Coal and Steel is assured.
The conference will address the specific issues and role of stainless steels in meeting the challenge of the modern society, particularly in terms of
sustainability. Issues addressed will include the consequences of restricted availability of specific alloying elements (leading to alloy substitution), newly
developed grades,
improvement of current austenitic, ferritic, martensitic, duplex and new high-Mn and duplex steel grades, and the demand for modified and innovative
production routes. User concerns, including improved performance in terms of welding, corrosion and forming, will also be important.
Europe has until now been the leader in the production of stainless steel. China is, however, now coming as a strong player into this field. They will soon
have some of the biggest stainless steel works in the world. In order to support the competitiveness of the European stainless steel industry and to keep its
leading position, we must even more strengthen our research and in close contact with the market, our customers, develop the niche products they need.
This conference offers a good opportunity for dissemination of the results of our research and also to discuss with our customers their needs for future
products.
The conference will cover both fundamental and applied aspects of stainless steels, in the following topics:
• Applications and service experience of stainless steel
• New trends in stainless steel processing
• Fabrication technology
• Surface treatment and surface properties of stainless steel
• Modelling of microstructures and properties
• Corrosion, testing and performance, with and without load
• Guidelines and standards
The conference theme and papers are in good accordance with the objectives and scientific/technical and socio-economic priorities of the Research Fund
for Coal and Steel, as they “…increase competitiveness and contribute to sustainable development… the development of new or improved technologies to
guarantee the economic, clean and safe production of steel and steel products characterised by steadily increasing performance, suitability to use, customer
satisfaction, prolonged service life, easy recovery and recycling.”
Many of the conference papers also covers the current priorities of the Strategic Research Agenda of the European Steel Technology Platform (ESTEP),
quoted in the RFCS Information Package 2007 The conference is organized by Jernkontoret and sponsored by most of the leading companies in this filed in
Europe:
Outokumpu, Sandvik Materials Technology, ESAB, ThyssenKrupp Nirosta, ThyssenKrupp Acciai Speciali Terni, UGINE & ALZ, Nickel Institute, IMOA,
International Chromium Development Association and Euro Inox.
Details can be found on the conference web site www.stainless08.com
The conference is the latest in a successful series of international conferences
* Florence in 1993
* Düsseldorf in 1996,
* Sardinia in 1999,
* Paris in 2002
* Seville in 2005.
In 2007 some conferences were held, with names rather similar to this conference. They however were concentrated on other aspects:
3rd International Conference ‘Stainless Steel Markets 2007’ in Moscow, in September.
That conference is mainly devoted to market, meaning in this connection financing and statistics. Science and technical research, as in our conference, is

Title: New advanced ultra high strength bainitic steels: ductility and formability
Acronym DUCTAFORM
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The main objective of this proposal is to develop advanced ultra high strength (UHS) hot rolled sheet steels with an optimum ductility and a suitable
bending behaviour, and annealed cold rolled sheet steels with a good combination of work hardening and stretch flangeability. The tough bainitic ferrite
matrix and the heterogeneities in phases’ hardness for this microstructure will allow reaching the most favourable combination of drawability/stretch
formability/bendability
in these steels. For this purpose, an innovative concept based on theory alone will be followed to design the alloy composition and suitable control
processing of advanced bainitic steel sheets.
Likewise, forming processes such as continuous shaping and hardening, and press-hardening will be optimised to achieve a fully carbide free bainitic
structure in final products such as structural safety components in the car body i.e. A-beam, roof-beams, car bumpers and side impact beams.

Title: Novel nanostructured bainitic steel grades to answer the need for high performance steel components
Acronym NANOBAIN
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The aim of the proposed project is to investigate the properties (in particular, wear and fatigue resistance) of a virtually new class of steel grades based on a
new class of microstructures: nanostructured bainite.
These microstructures are the product of recent developments at the University of Cambridge and CENIM, and are obtained by applying modified
bainitizing heat-treatments on steels of carefully designed compositions.
Where tested, these 'nanobainitic' steels have demonstrated outstanding mechanical properties, although complex mechanical properties (notably wear and
fatigue) remain to explore. These steels will allow for a true leap forward in the area of ecological and economical high performance steel grades.

Title: Novel rolling methods for advanced high strength hot rolled steels
Acronym ROLLINGHASS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Wide steel research efforts are being directed to develop new-generation, high-performance steels (AHSS), particularly those having ultra-high strength
with good ductility, finding many applications in automotive industry, building and construction sector, etc. The target in preceding researches has been the
innovative processing of steels, utilizing thermodynamic calculations and physical metallurgy principles for novel chemical composition design, modeling,
and sophisticated hot working and dedicated heat treatments throughout the strictly controlled manufacturing stage. Furthermore, uniform properties and
good flatness of plates and sheets are also targeted by strict control of processing at laboratory and industrial scale. In the proposed research the focus will
be directed on the evaluation and optimization of the challenging rolling phenomena and methods to enable fabrication of thin advanced hot rolled high
strength steels (AHSS) in the production scale with good strip flatness and excellent profile minimizing cobble risk.

Title: New creep resistant stable steel for USC power plant
Acronym CRESTA
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The new Ultra SuperCritical coal-fired power plants will have several steel components (waterwalls, superheaters, steam-line and turbine) operating at
temperatures range 600-650°C. In the next generation with higher steam parameters (700-720°C/350bar) waterwalls will reach up to 600°C metal
temperatures, leading to higher corrosion, oxidation and creep loads. Considering recent creep stability breakdowns of current 12% Cr steels, the remaining
options are the use of already developed 9%Cr steels with Post Weld Heat Treatment, complicated and more expensive, or the nickel base superalloys with
10 times
higher cost, affecting seriously the overall plant economy. The proposal aims at developing a new low cost steel grade able to work at the above mentioned
conditions.

Title: Electrical steel with improved magnetic characteristics by asymmetric hot and cold rolling
Acronym ASYLECTRO
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Non Oriented Electrical Steels (NGO) strips are used to build the magnetic cores of rotating electric machines. Market requirements, driving product
development, mainly concern ratio between product-cost/magnetic-properties, as well as geometric characteristics of the sheets, which influences
manufacturing costs and core tolerances .
It is intended to develop new NGO grades with improved characteristics and/or drastic reduction of production costs. Such a target will be reached by
designing and optimising innovative processing routes based on Asymmetric Hot and/or Cold Rolling to obtain magnetically favourable texture and
microstructure on the finished products. A program of experimental simulation of the thermo mechanical cycles for the new products starting from
laboratory ingots and industrial rough bars will be strongly linked to a parallel program of theoretical modeling to study texture/microstructure evolution as
well as modeling devoted to study the technological aspects of asymmetric rolling of Fe-Si. A critical assessment of industrial feasibility of the routes to
produce the new products will be done.

Title: Optimal strength control by individual strip related tuning of cooling processes in the hot rolling area based on models
and in-line strength measurements
Acronym StrengthCONTROL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The aim of this project is to produce significant smaller material parameter deviations over the whole strip length in hot strip mills. For this purpose a new
strength optimisation system is developed, which adapts the setup of the run-out table cooling strip-by-strip and meter-by-meter. Basis of the adaptation are
the
online material parameter measurement and an iterative learning control concept. Higher yield, less costs for tensile testing, and a strength guaranteed along
the total strip length will be achieved. To reduce scale and processing time a fast coil cooling strategy will be investigated. Furthermore, a new cooling
system
will be developed to perform an additionally controlled width adaptable cooling at the coiler.

Title: Micro-scale damage tolerance of AHSS steels as function of microstructure and stress/strain state
Acronym MICRODAMAGE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Complex sheet forming introduces a significant amount of prestrain to AHS-steels and may generate a number of voids or even micro-cracks in microdamage sensitive microstructures. Forming itself is considered successful when no visible cracks develop on the surface. It is important to recognise the
response of different AHSS microstructures on forming prestrain and how such “damaged”
microstructures sustain the external stresses during service.
This project will develop a new criterion for micro-scale damage tolerance based on the effect of prestrain on development of voids, their growth and final
fracture, and used this criterion as a new method for evaluating formability.

Title: Load spectrum lightening of fatigue tests data for time reduction of design validation
Acronym SpeedFat
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The purpose is to develop filtering procedures in order to shorten fatigue loading spectrum without changing the damage and so accelerate tests and final
validation of structures.
Oriented to High Strength Steel and automotive industries, final results will be also valid for other applications. Filtering procedures have to consider
microstructural aspects in order to show the interest of HSS on the filtering level. 75% of time reduction can be expected depending on loading.
Dealing with fatigue design, safety and sustainable development can be associated to this proposal.
A European recommendation could be an outlook of this scientific works achievement.

Title: Improving and enlarging the application field of HSS and UHSS for automotive body components by technologies based
on roll forming and stretch bending processes
Acronym HI-PROF
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
High Strength Steels and (HSS) Ultra High Strength Steel (UHSS) offer great possibilities for weight reduction, increased safety and reduced fuel
consumption. However, serious problems are connected to production of the high strength steel parts, especially using traditional technologies (stamping,
Hydroforming), mainly related to low formability, spring back and tool wear.
The current project aims at enlarging the use of HSS and UHSS for the production of lightweight automotive components by promoting the use of
alternative processes and process chains, with higher degrees of flexibility and potentially more suitable for the production of component in UHSS: the Roll
Forming and Stretch Bending processes.
The proposal address the understanding of the roll forming and stretch bending processes capabilities for UHSS, by the in depth study of the basic
principles which dominate the forming process chain if connected with UHSS, and the enlarging of the applications by the production of clear and robust
know how and guidelines, for the manufacturing complex parts, the realisation of predictive numerical tools for process feasibility, of cost estimation tools,
and of specific formability tests.

Title: Prediction of microstructure and constraint effects on fatigue behaviour in engineering applications
Acronym MICROFAT
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The proposal aims to develop an experimental and methodological know-how to establish the relationship between steel microstructure and constraint
effects and fatigue behaviour of high strength structural steels for mechanical components in terms of crack initiation/propagation phase.
The developed knowhow will be extended to real in-service conditions and identified engineering applications and components, in particular when
multiaxial random loads with overloads are Present.
A validated criterion to predict the in-service behaviour of selected mechanical components, taking account of steel microstructure, surface roughness as
well as stress-strain field, will be developed starting from state-of-the-art theories (e.g. Dang Van, Kitagawa-Takahashi, Murakami) and metallurgical
knowledge. Mechanical components production and special testing on full-scale components will be also performed. With these aims a Consortium among
CSM, SIDENOR, CEIT, ASCOMETAL and IVECO has been formed.

Title: High velocity forming of steel sheets and tubes for applications in the automotive industry
Acronym HI-VEL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Automotive industry is demanding more efficient materials and manufacturing processes to design lightweight and safer cars with less vehicle emissions, so
that the use of HSS (high strength steel) has significantly increased.
Regarding innovative manufacturing processes, the high velocity forming techniques (electromagnetic, electrohydraulic) appear to be alternatives to
overcome limitations from a weaker formability of HSS.
The project objective is to establish the feasibility of high velocity forming methods and to quantify the enhancement achievable with these techniques in
the formability of HSS and stainless steel sheets and tubes for automotive applications such as reinforcements, exhaust system components or forming of
small radii at any component.

Title: Ultra high strength and ductile Fe Mn Al C light-weight steels
Acronym MnAl-steel
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
New design concepts for the construction of advanced transportation systems, specifically automotive vehicles of high safety standards, with reduced fuel
consumption and emission of exhaust gases and of low weight require the use of high-strength and ductile steels combined with enhanced energy absorption
and reduced specific weight. Another important aspect is the improvement in deep drawing and stretch forming of sheet steels for the manufacturing of
tailored blanks and stiffened components. Highmanganese light-weight steels of about 18 to 26 wt.-% Mn with larger amounts of aluminium (8 to 11 wt.%) fulfil these requirements.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The main aim is to develop and apply deep cryogenic treatments (DCT) in order to improve wear resistance and fatigue life of:
• automotive components, that may lead to weigth reduction;
• metalforming tooling and machining tools, that may lead to increase the tools life.
We will pay special attention to the microstructural changes and the fatigue behaviour improvement that takes place as a function of the cryogenic
treatment route.
The project will provide a better understanding of the parameters influencing the DCT and will analyse how to integrate it within the industrial production
line.

Title: Innovative approach for steel design procedures tailored to component machining
Acronym PROMACH
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Technical breakthroughs in automotive components demand sustainable production and wider use of high-performance steels. Stringent requirements of
machining operations demand re-evaluation of strategies for steel development.
Steel Design Procedure to minimize running costs will be defined for components of above 900 MPa, proposing steel solutions tailored to the machining
process, considering cost analysis and global process productivity. For pearlitic, bainitic and martensitic steels of same strength, screening of available
technologies for machinability improvement (S, Ca, Pb / Bi…), even clean-steels is considered for basic and advanced machining investigations.
Strategies for steel development and process optimization relevant to both European steelmakers and end-users are the expected outcome.

Title: Prediction of the kinetics of self-repair of forming-induced defects on thin functional primers for advanced automotive
applications
Acronym KINSREP
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The proposal deals with self-repair of defects resulting from forming processes in advanced composite organic coatings for the automotive industry. The
approach focusses on the correlation between corrosion tests and practical performance of very thin weldable primers and on the addition of inhibiting
pigments, optionally encapsulated in sub-micron containers, for selfrepair at cracks. The working programme includes (1) the development of a
combination of advanced analytical, spectroscopic and electrochemical techniques, for kinetics study and
monitoring of self-repair of forming-induced defects in coatings applied on zinc-coated steel, and (2) the fundamental understanding of the physicochemical processes involved in self-repair.

Title: An efficient and effective methodology and simulation tools for die design and springback compensation for HSS and
UHSS
Acronym SPRINCOM
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
HSS and UHSS offer high light-weighting potential for car body structural components. The large amount of springback after forming operations is
currently limiting the penetration of such steel grades, because of the large effort to be spent for tool design and tolerance satisfaction, requiring longer try
out phases and increased development costs.
The current research proposal aims at enlarging the use of UHSS in the automotive sector by developing and making available to material suppliers and
automotive designers:
- Deep knowledge about springback of UHSS;
- Reliable and robust methods and tools for springback prediction and springback compensation
by die shape modification, taking into account the effect of the steel property variability.

Title: Promotion of steel in sustainable and adaptable buildings
Acronym PROSSUS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The use of steel in residential buildings is strongly dependent on the concepts of sustainability and adaptable construction systems. This Type 2 project
will disseminate the steel technologies developed and demonstrated in RFCS project 7215-PP-058, with the objective of creating a greater understanding
of new ways of residential building using steel.
It is proposed to prepare dissemination material giving details of the 5 demonstration buildings, and to prepare information on sustainability benefits of
steel construction. Many of the projects in participating countries led to new construction technologies, and this Type 2 project will provide an opportunity
to
disseminate both the new technologies and the information gained during testing and monitoring.
National seminars will help to spread the knowledge to e.g. architects, clients and politicians.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The tasks developed by the applicant will be the participation in the testing campaign and the study of non-deterministic methods for the prediction of
vibroacoustic phenomena.
Consequently, the calibration (and enrichment with probabilistic techniques) of the numerical model, the participation in a testing campaign and the
collaboration with more experienced people in vibroacoustics will be the benefits for the applicant.
Moreover, benefits for host and applicant organisations will be a better development of the testing campaign, a more solid and theoretical based knowledge
of vibroacoustic phenomena and a correct interpretation of results which will lead to useful rules of acoustic design for lightweight steel structural
elements.

Title: Modern plastic design for steel structures
Acronym PLASTOTOUGH
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The overall objective of this project is to supply analytical methods, which will provide the quantification of an upper shelf toughness criterion to allow for
safe plastic design of steel structures using modern construction steels.
Since this criterion is still missing, the plastic design of structural elements is only permitted when the steels used meet extremely severe test requirements,
which penalise the use of steel by uneconomical design methods.
Therefore the application of this criterion will inevitably lead to increased exploitation and employment of steel in buildings, bridges, pressure vessels,
offshore and pipeline structures and thus to the enhancement of the
competitiveness of the European industry.

many industrial sectors as construction, agricultural machinery or shipbuilding industry. However, fundamental metallurgical facts cause these steels to be
relatively difficult to weld. The existing limitations, as insufficient fatigue strength caused e.g. by an extreme martensite formation, can be overcome by the
use of appropriate welding methods combined with induction heating. Thus,
an adaption of weld seam properties to the base materials properties will be enabled. The project results are expected to lead to an increased use of high
strength steels and to gain benefit of both cost saving and raw material saving aspects.

Title: Economic and durable design of composite bridges with integral abutments
Acronym INTAB
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Bridges are of vital importance to the European infrastructure and economy leading to the request for highly advances and economic structures.
Further on the maintenance of bridges is an ever-growing problem for the road administrations.
Experience from already constructed bridges with integrated abutments show that the traditional bridges with joints are outclassed, the former being not
only less
expensive to maintain, but also more affordable to build.
The research proposal INTAB investigates on this innovative bridge type and aims on promoting composite bridges with integral abutments.
The major objectives of the proposal are to elaborate cost effective, environmental friendly and sustainable bridge structures, to prove their durability in
practice
and to provide design guidance for competitive construction.

Title: Fatigue behaviour of high strength steels welded joints in offshore and marine systems
Acronym FATHOMS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Several Standards/Recommendations are available for welded joints fatigue design; such codes can be over conservative, sometimes not accounting for
specific in service conditions (e.g. high R values) and not covering high grade steels.
Recently the technological evolution, in particular for offshore applications, seems to point out a trend towards an increasing use of high strength/ high
quality/high performances welded joints (SMYS 420 MPa) and the need to develop a specific know-how on their fatigue behavior is becoming a crucial
issue.
The general aim of this proposal is to comply with this request and to contribute to enlarge the Standards applicability.

Title: Connections of steel and composite structures under natural fire conditions
Acronym COSSFIRE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Based on the existing technical data on standard fire behaviour of steel and composite structure connections, the current proposed project is aimed to
investigate in detail the behaviour of connections under natural fire condition by means of:
• natural fire heating condition tests on both connection components (bolts and welding) and different types of connections;
• advanced numerical modelling and different parametric numerical analysis;
Above experimental and numerical investigations will lead to the development of:
• simple calculation rules as well as construction details for economic and practical fire design of connections of steel framed buildings
• a design guide of steel connections under natural fire condition and for global structural analysis in fire safety engineering

Title: Improvement in steel utilisation by recent break-through in high-power fibre laser welding
Acronym FIBLAS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
To join high-strength steels, various laser welding processes are applied. However, these lasers show low flexibility, low efficiency and high costs, which
often prohibits their application. To improve this situation, high-power fibre lasers have been recently developed. However, only few experiences in
welding exist. To prepare their application, welding equipment and processes will be developed and the process-property-performance relationship will be
established for high-strength steels, taking the applications shipbuilding, pipe production and pipelaying. The results are expected to lead to an increased
use of high strength steels and to improve cost saving and environmental protection by energy
savings.

Title: Prefabricated enduring composite beams based on innovative shear transmission
Acronym PrECo-Beam
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Composite structures are gaining in importance in Europe. The combination of materials within its specific properties results in very slender and economic
constructions. Composite girders permit large spans in slender frame bridges without loss of economy. Due to the high grade of prefabrication in building
construction smaller survey heights and shorter construction times are possible.
The enduring bearing capacity of composite girders depends on the performance of material and the design of shear connection. A new form of shear
transmission - the concrete dowel - permits composite girders without an upper steel flange and an enduring shear connection also of high strength steel with
high strength concrete. The PrECo-Beam construction and its application are comparable to existing prefabricated composite systems. With a high surface
durability and less sensitivity for fatigue the system comprehends long-lasting advantages. The modular composition moves principal works for the
structures
and multi-storey building from the site into the workshop, reduces the construction time and improves the quality to reduce maintenance costs.

Title: High-strength steel tower for wind turbines
Acronym HISTWIN
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The over all objective is to improve competitiveness of steel towers used to support multi mega-watt wind turbines. An integrated view on the optimization
of the whole steel tower is based on an analysis of the limiting criteria that govern wind tower design. Fatigue is one restraint for design of a more
economical towers and use of high strength steel. One solution is an improvement of the existing flange detail and another to use of friction type joint to
allow higher strains in the shell. A detailed program is conceived to verify these two innovations. Another limitation is shell buckling where the resistance
is strongly related to imperfections. An optimal balance between fabrication costs and resistance will be sought.

Title: Design for optimal life cycle costs (LCC) of high speed railway bridges by enhanced monitoring systems
Acronym DETAILS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Steel-concrete composite bridges are an important alternative to concrete bridges due to considerable advantages regarding the design, construction time,
durability and costs.
They are largely exploited in high-speed lines of the European railway networks even if a lot of still open problems in design and management limit their
exploiting.
The proposal aims to remove actual uncertainties on dynamic effects and interaction phenomena, fatigue loadings, structural modelling, fatigue life and
damage assessment.
What’s more, such results will allow to set up an innovative design approach, able to minimize life-cycle costs guaranteeing adequate safety level and
working conditions.

Title: Workpack design for steel house
Acronym WiSH
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The project objective is to increase light steel frames use in housing by a new fully validated comprehensive, self contained and userfriendly design
package.
Such use exploits favourable criteria such as cost, safety, environmental/energy impacts and design flexibility. The gap of light steel frame use in Europe
compared to America or Japan is partly due to the lack of common tools and building players awareness of benefits of light steel construction.
The objective will be met by promotion and dissemination of the design package starting with Belgium, France and Spain by means of workshops, training
sessions preparation and IT-based communication.

Title: Valorisation of knowledge for competitive steel and composite bridges
Acronym COMBRI+
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Within the RFCS research project COMBRI essential knowledge has been assembled to enhance the competitiveness of steel and composite bridges. This
type 2 proposal aims at the valorisation and promotion of these results not only to reach a wider audience but also to assure the application of the
outcomes. A design manual including worked examples and conceptual design issues will contribute to a better understanding and assessment of the
knowledge gained along with the possibility to highlight the relevant topics. An implementation of the knowledge in a future revision of Eurocode or in
national application documents is prepared to create a common basis providing European designers, manufacturers and bridge owners with all the benefits.

Title: Fire safety of industrial hall - valorisation project
Acronym FS+
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
New fire safety regulation proposals for single storey buildings have appeared in different countries (France, Spain, and Belgium) that could result a
significant loss of market share for steel. The steel industry must be ready to provide strong technical arguments and solutions to avoid the introduction of
excessive fire resistance requirements in the single storey field throughout Europe. With this aim, an ECSC Project called “Fire Safety of Industrial hall and
low rise building” has been finalized last year.
Significant and encouraging results have been obtained during this project.
The aim is to disseminate all the results obtained during this project by :
- the redaction of a design guide that provides a way to guarantee the safety of occupants and firemen through alternatives to prescriptive ISO fire
requirements
- the organization of workshop including local authorities and firemen

Title: Human induced vibration of steel structures
Acronym HiVoSS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The use of modern high strength steels allows the design of more slender and light weight structures.
However with increasing slenderness sensitivity of structures to vibrations rises.
An ECSC research project concerning floor vibrations and a RFCS project concerning vibrations of footbridges were carried out to study how to deal with
vibration level in light weight structures.
The project proposed here aims at the promotion of the combined knowledge gained in the two projects specified above that provide already drafts of
guidelines. The promotion covers the preparation of a guideline for vibration design with worked examples, concise background information, preparation of
presentations and performance of seminars.

Title: Development of innovative steel-glass-structures in respect to structural and architectural design
Acronym INNOGLAST
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Currently, steel-glass constructions are favourably used in modern architecture. This proposal addresses the design of new and innovative steel-glassstructures in respect to architectural, static-structural and fabrication criteria. Different types of steel-glass constructions are analysed or even newly
developed focusing on an optimal structural interaction between steel and glass. The research includes steelsupported glazing systems and the development
of a new hybrid steel-glass beam, consisting of steel flanges and a glass web, all of which can be used in facades, roofs, atria etc. Thus, glass is used as a
stiffened as well as a full bearing element in steel-glass constructions. Consequently, the research project will produce comprehensive solutions for
innovative steel-glass-structures. The need for the projected research is pointed out in the “European Steel Technology Platform” ESTEP 2006 which
actually defines the design of steel-glass structures as a short-term research area.

Title: Economics of steel framed buildings in Europe
Acronym ESE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
This proposal is intended to provide a web-based costing tool for designers of steel framed buildings in Europe, which will enable them to develop costeffective steel solutions at the development stages of a project. It will be developed using the latest cost-modelling techniques for the overall building cost,
and will include a simple facility for incorporating the latest cost rates. The scope of the tool will include multistorey commercial and residential buildings,
and single-storey industrial buildings. No such information is currently available for practitioners, and it is intended that the provision of this will expand
the market for steel.

Title: Prefabricated steel structures for low-rise buildings in seismic areas
Acronym PRECASTEEL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Low-rise buildings are obviously extensively used for industrial and commercial activities. Nowadays, most of these buildings are built by prefabricated
concrete elements that are well known to suffer from an intrinsic weakness due to low efficiency of connections and a lower ductility performance when
subjected to earthquake loading. The proposal aims at defining prefabricated steel solutions for realising single-storey industrial and lowrise commercial
buildings in earthquake-prone areas, able to satisfy requirements of industrial and commercial activities.
An automated integrated design software with cost-effectiveness analysis module will be realised to favour the use of proposed solutions in common design
practice.

Title: Optimizing the seismic performance of steel and steel-concrete structures by standardizing material quality control
Acronym OPUS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Despite modern seismic standards, like Eurocode 8, admit ductile design of steel and composite structures, current European production standards don’t
provide adequate limitations on steel mechanical properties limiting free application of such approach.
Additional safety factors and design checks, aiming to guarantee optimal plastic hinges’ location, must be foreseen, reducing practical applicability and
possible advantages of seismic ductile design.
The proposal aims at the definition of harmonised production and structural recommendations specifically for seismic areas, allowing design of ductile
structures without any supplementary assessments on materials.
Competitiveness, cheapness and safety of steel solutions in earthquake-prone areas will be highly increased.

Title: Optimisation and improvement of the flame straightening process
Acronym OPTISTRAIGHT
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The research proposal “OPTISTRAIGHT” aims at the improvement of the manufacturing process for geometry achieving of elements and members out of
structural steel, leading to a significant enhancement of the competitiveness of steel construction elements for the construction, crane, ship and machinery
industry.
This objective will be achieved by proofing the efficiency and feasibility of the flame straightening procedures to be researched. These procedures will
result into more precise geometry, less detrimental effect on the material, less energy input, quicker and healthier production and thus improved economical
positions avoiding expensive repair work.

Title: Fire resistance of long span cellular beam made of rolled profiles
Acronym FICEB
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Cellular beams (CB) offer long uninterrupted clear spans, which are ideal for offices. However, increasingly, questions are being asked about the
performance of CB in fire and especially, about the performance of the protection material.
A uniform European design approach is required to overcome the present lack of knowledge. This should include both protected and unprotected beams
fabricated from hot rolled sections. The design approach will be developed using standard furnace fire resistance tests, a large full sized test and numerical
simulations. It will lead to reduced amounts of fire protection, more economic designs and an increase use of CB.

Title: Renovation of buildings using steel technologies
Acronym ROBUST
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
ROBUST addresses the renovation and improvement of existing buildings using steel-based technologies. It focuses on the particular issues in residential,
industrial and commercial buildings and on techniques such as over-cladding, roof-top extensions and retrofit of timber roofs by steel. The scope of work
concentrates on both building technology and building physics questions, particularly where overcladding of the existing building greatly reduces the heat
loss through the façade or roof. An economic and sustainability assessment of these techniques will be made.

Title: Unbraced composite structures in fire
Acronym UCoSiF
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Bracing of buildings is traditionally realized through concrete cores giving lateral support to composite structures, whereas in modern composite buildings
unbraced frames are applied. However, current design rules in fire–related part of Eurocode 4 are limited to non–sway buildings with efficient bracing
systems.
Since there are numerous advantages linked with unbraced composite structures, as enhanced flexibility concerning usable space, simple calculation
methods need to be developed allowing for economic design of this structural system. The proposed development of new design tools will be based on
numerical and experimental work and should be incorporated in Eurocodes for broad dissemination.

Title: Steel solutions for seismic retrofit and upgrade of existing constructions
Acronym STEELRETRO
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The majority of existing buildings are in need of seismic retrofit. The main reasons are: the original design was not optimised with respect to the required
safety level, poor construction quality, modifications or enlargements of buildings during their life and increase in the requirements of the seismic design.
Even if steel solutions can often be more efficient and economic, their possibilities are practically unknown and their application has been limited to a few
particular cases. The aim of the research proposal is to set up steel solutions for the seismic retrofit of existing buildings, furnishing design and construction
methodologies, tools for dimensioning of elements and connections as well as for cost estimation.

Title: New market chances for steel structures by innovative fastening solutions
Acronym InFaSo
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
"Innovative Fastening Solutions" (InFaSo) promotes and encourages the wider use of steel in building structures where until now only concrete has been
used. This is achieved by simple, efficient joints allowing for quick and easy connection of steel beams / columns to concrete structures with large
tolerances.
These joints also allow easy removal, strengthening and application for renovation by a simplified manufacturing and an enlargement of the design strength
and ductility. The results will be prepared in the form of a handbook and electronic construction aids so that also engineers not used to design in steel are
able to implement them. Thus “InFaSo” opens the gate for new market chances for steel structures and decisively enhance the competitive position of the
European steel construction sector.

Title: Dissipative devices for seismic resistant steel frames
Acronym FUSEIS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Two innovative types of seismic resistant steel frames with dissipative fuses will be developed.
The dissipative zones in such frames will be the fuses, while the other parts of the structure will be protected against inelastic deformations. In case of
strong earthquakes damage will concentrate only in the fuses, which will be exchangeable. Repair work after a strong seismic event, if needed, will be
limited only in replacing the fuses. Experimental and theoretical investigations will be performed to study the response of the fuses as well as the overall
frames to cyclic loading. Design guides will be provided.

Title: Bridge fatigue guidance - meeting sustainable design and assessment
Acronym BRiFaG
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The service lives of prospective and existing steel and composite bridges are invariably governed by fatigue, making thus their adequate fatigue
performance essential for their competitiveness. Unfortunately, actual design rules not only are becoming outdated for the design, both in terms of the
coverage of design details
and applicability to modern structural analysis methods, but have also never been adapted to address maintenance issues such as inspection and repair. The
aim of the proposed research is thus to provide a comprehensive guide for the fatigue design of new and maintenance of old steel bridges.

Title: Analysis of fitting noise propagation in steel lightweight constructions and design solutions for their prevention
Acronym AFINOPRO
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Lightweight steel walls used in steel buildings have only a low specific mass per surface unit. Due to their high elasticity module, the steel beams within the
walls are excellent sound conductors. Plumbing noises are generated by pressure shocks, and eddy phenomena. So the vibrations of water columns
generate covibrations of the walls. This body sound is introduced into the wall mainly by the fastenings and other sound bridges and finally, it is perceived
via the walls and ceilings as perceptible fitting noise everywhere.
It is a very important criterion for the reserve face to steel housing.

Title: Design and integrity assessment of high strength tubular structures for extreme loading conditions
Acronym HITUBES
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The construction industry is lagging behind other industries concerning the use of high-strength steel (HSS) tubular structures. Though Eurocode 3 Part 112 extends its scope to steel grades up to S690/S700MC, many limitations exist at the material, structural and design level. The HITUBES project intends
to develop performance-based designs and assessment procedures to make full use of HSS tubes
up to S700MC for flexible structures subjected to extreme repeated loads. Necessary tools will be lab and in situ tests, modelling, integrity assessment and
maintenance procedures. The ambitious targets are to increase the performance of tubular structures, reduce weights and construction and operating costs.

Title: Robustness of car parks against localised fire
Acronym ROBUSTFIRE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The increase of the market shares for steel and composite car parks in Europe is somewhat limited by the lack of information on how these structures
behave under exceptional localised fire. In the present project, a general philosophy for the design of robust structures against exceptional events will be
developed and practical design guidelines for its application to car parks under localised fire will be derived. To achieve this goal, experience will be
gained from previous or ongoing RFCS projects related to various individual aspects (temperature
distribution, joint behaviour …) and further experimental, numerical and analytical developments will be achieved.

Title: Performance-based approaches for high strength tubular columns and connections under earthquake and fire loadings
Acronym ATTEL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The use of high strength steel (HSS) circular hollow sections (CHS) is still limited in the construction industry despite of their excellent structural and
architectural properties and the fast development of endpreparation machines. Moreover, although EC3-1-12 extends its scope to steel grades up to
S690/S700MC, limitations exist at the material, structural and design level. The ATTEL project aims at
developing performance-based design approaches, where the capacity design – widely used in seismic engineering to avoid brittle failure and to ensure
ductile behaviour – will be extended to HSS tubular CHS structures to prevent failure and collapse under both earthquake and fire loading.

Title: Energy and thermal improvements for construction in steel
Acronym ETHICS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
ETHICS is concerned with evaluating, measuring and improving the thermal and energy performance of steel-clad and steel framed buildings. It will
address important building physics and performance issues using both laboratory test methods and by measuring the ‘as built’ performance of real
buildings. The project
will result in design guidance for commercial, industrial and residential buildings and design tools to assist in assessing and optimising whole building
performance. These tools will be calibrated against whole building measurements, obtained from the research. Opportunities for renewable energy and
other energy-saving features will be assessed.

Title: Composite bridges with prefabricated decks
Acronym ELEM
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The overall objective is to improve competitiveness of composite bridges by an elaboration of new cost effective, time effective and sustainable bridge
structures.
To allow for a prefabrication of the concrete deck, a new concept with dry joints and another one with wet-bonded joints between the elements is
investigated and developed.
The shear transmission between steel and concrete and between the deck elements will be investigated and new solutions will be elaborated and tested. A
detailed program is conceived to verify these innovations. As part of this program, their durability and utilisability will be proven to obtain competitive
composite bridges.

Title: Combined ultrasound and micromagnetic measurements for non destructive assessment of textured heavy plate properties
Acronym PLATEND
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Savings of 11M EUR/year could be achieved by European plate manufacturers, through the optimisation of the extremity length to cut out and the
reduction of associated handling operations. Such a target seems achievable by combining non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques.
Ultrasonic or magnetic techniques alone provide insufficient predictions but combining them showed promising prospects during recent laboratory work.
The proposal aims to investigate thoroughly the performance of such combinations on a comprehensive selection of textured plates, with laboratory and inplant investigations.

Title: Plant wide error messaging system based on new communication technologies
Acronym PERMESS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Monitoring and supervision systems in industry has substantially grown in last years thanks to advances in instrumentation and computer hardware for
processing, visualization and storage of process data. In parallel, communications and information technologies have had an exponential growth and
nowadays they bring us services that just a few years ago were far away.
Not surprisingly, recent efforts are looking to the integration of supervision and Internet in order to exploit benefits and cross-fertilization of both
disciplines.
This project will contribute to minimize time needed for detecting and diagnosing troubles in steel plants, reducing loses of time and increasing production
capacity.

Title: Optimization of stocks management and production scheduling by simulation of the continuous casting, rolling and
finishing departments
Acronym SIMUSTEEL
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The CC, Rolling and Finishing areas have a clear connection in terms of scheduling. The product-mix is continuously rescheduled and the coils movements
between mills, lines and intermediate warehouses implies a significant part of the product cost structure.
Some breaks in the supply chain could lead to expensive production stops and even coils losses. One solution of these problems is the simulation.
The main output is a software tool that implements a method to solve problems of the production flows of a modern steel plant. It will be based on an
intelligent
system consisting of a scheduler and a simulator of the materials flows.
The tool will be provided with an innovative user interface, based on web technology.
The pilot activities will be carried out at Aceralia Avilés and ThyssenKrupp Acciai Speciali Terni plant.

Title: Factory wide e-training for steel human resource improvement and meeting process objectives
Acronym eTipo
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The rapid technological evolution in the steel industry, driven by information technologies, raises several questions such as the adaptability of its laborer
force. In addition business process goals defined by the managers have to be considered in the working-place training programs, structuring them in
accordance
with the specific needs of the company.
To improve the availability of process knowledge and business objectives is a key factor for the steel industries during the next future, so the final goal of
this proposal is to develop a new e-learning solution for the steel production environments based on different and complementary approaches.

Title: Characterisation of thin films on rough steel substrates
Acronym THINFILM
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The characterisation of thin films is not satisfactory at present by lacking methodology, knowledge and CRM’s.
The goal is the full characterization of thin films (thickness, composition, homogeneity in depth as well as laterally) that are of economical importance
(Industry, Automotive, Packaging markets) and having a thickness typically between 0.5 nm and 1000 nm..
This objective is to compare the possibilities of existing characterization techniques (used in steel research) with “more exotic” techniques not well known
for steel applications.
Complementarity, speed, availability and costs are important aspects of the analysis.
The final report will include results of a round robin, procedures for direct implementation and a data base of reference materials.

Title: Control of nitrogen oxide emission at the electric arc furnace
Acronym CONOX
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Increasing importance of reduced dust and air polluting emissions (CO2, NOx) competes with minimum total EAF energy input and maximum energy
efficiency. Therefore, it is desirable to avoid formation of NOx by controlled operation of the EAF. A consortium of three steel producers and two research
institutes in Germany and Italy aims to investigate, understand and control the emission of NOx in EAF steel making. The impact of various current EAF
technologies on the NOx formation will be investigated (1) experimentally by EAF off-gas measurements at
production of various steel grades with different EAF types and in pilot plants and (2) theoretically by modelling based on thermo-chemistry and
computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The basic objective is to improve production control and R&D efficiency for novel Zn-based alloy coatings. This will be accomplished by adapting and
evaluating a range of advanced analytical and data treatment techniques for fast and complete characterisation of such coatings. Since the introduction of
these novel coating types are of major strategic importance for the European steel industry, a very broad consortium of major steel companies and several
expert laboratories has been formed. A very wide range of analytical techniques and development of an expert system based on the most advanced data
treatment methods available will be used. Also, limited on-line trials in a pilot plant will be included in the final phase of the project.

Title: Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy for advanced characterisation and sorting of steel scrap
Acronym LCS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this project is to develop and assemble a transportable demonstrator, which uses Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), for
automatic sorting of steel scrap. Two applications are planned for field testing of the device:
-Sorting and classification of shredded steel scrap at the exit of a shredder.
-Detailed quantitative chemical analysis of scrap moving on a conveyor belt feeding an electric arc furnace (EAF).
The development of the LIBS demonstrator system is complex. Nevertheless, the project is essential in order to reach a new technique level in the steel
industry. The work enables simultaneously, reductions in production costs, improved product quality, and significantly reduced environmental loads.

Title: Improved utilisation of results from automatic surface inspection systems
Acronym IRSIS
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Because surface quality is of increasing importance for many steel applications, the results of automatic surface inspection systems (ASIS) become more
important. Based on the current situation that the detection and classification performance of today's ASIS is sufficient for many application purposes the
main potential lies in the proper utilisation of the ASIS results. Inside the project relevant problems of utilisation of ASIS results will be investigated, new
techniques will be developed and implemented in the field. Based on these new techniques different application examples will be realised and tested.
Results will be evaluated regarding their benefits and their transferability.

Title: Line-coordinated optimisation of strip geometry and surface properties by using model-based predictive technologies
Acronym LINECOP
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
To significantly improve the efficiency of their production chains, European steel producers need a global optimisation strategy that allows the
incorporation of factory-wide systems to predict and control the evolution and influences in terms of quality through the different processing stages.
LINECOP develops line-coordinated strip-quality assessment, monitoring and optimisation systems for cold rolling and hot-dip galvanising (incl.
continuous annealing and temper rolling), based on an integrated model for the whole processing route. The new through-process optimiser predictively
adapts the downstream processes to prevent transfer/final product-quality degradation and reduces maintenance effort and re-work.
The project will provide a valuable contribution for European steel producers to increase plant availability and product quality facing the trend towards
products with tighter tolerances and more uniform strip quality over strip length and width, as well as minimise zinc-layer “safety margins”, and thus reduce
material/energy and production costs. The benefits of the project will be demonstrated at ACERALIA’s, and EKO STAHL’s strip production lines.

Title: Avoiding water and acid consumption in chemical scale removal by innovative combined process
Acronym FREEZE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Pickling processes require large amounts of acid and water. So far, a part of the pickling acid has to be discarded as waste in regular intervals. Using a new
process combination of freezing crystallisation and precipitation the spent pickling acid can be separated into pure water, metal salt crystals and a solution
containing the active acid and a rest of metal salts. The active acid and the pure water can be recycled into the pickling process or the rinsing zone,
respectively.
The extracted metal salts can be treated by pryrohydrolysis or electrolysis to recover the bonded acid and to produce metal oxides or elementary metals,
respectively.

Title: Implementation of sensor based online control of pickling lines
Acronym SensorControPilot
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
A model based control concept to calculate strip speed set points in pickling lines, developed by UniOvi, and an online concentration measurement based
on ultrasound technology, developed by BFI, shall be implemented at a pickling line of TKS-RA inline to obtain a demonstration installation for sulphuric
acid pickling lines. Furthermore, both technologies shall be combined: online concentration data will be used as relevant data to calculate strip speed set
points. The control concept will help to improve strip quality and increase productivity by determining set points for the optimum strip speed with minimum
strip defects.

Title: Operational demonstration of innovative and sustainable nitrate elimination in stainless steel pickling by higher power
biological denitrification technique
Acronym NitrateBio Demo
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The most important stainless steel pickling acid in use is the mixture of nitric and hydrofluoric acid. Nitrogenous compounds in the arising pickling process
water, have to be eliminated before the disposal of wastewater. In the forerunner project 7210-PR/358 the great advantage by the application of high-power
bio-treatment for elimination of nitrate was shown. The industrial application of the developed process by this pilot and demonstration project is completely
new and innovative. It is a logical and important step to a zero nitrate emission strategy for pickling with nitric and hydrofluoric acid which helps to save
water resources.

Title: Process based steel cleanliness investigations and rapid metallurgical screening of inclusions by modern PDA techniques
Acronym RAMSCI
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The main goal of this project is to be able to obtain some process control in steelmaking with respect to inclusion characteristics. The pre-requisite for this
is state-of-the-art PDA optical emission spectrometry (OES) and advanced data treatment, highly developed in previous projects. The overall workplan is
to transfer this technology into actual process control; test, evaluate and improve it to an effective tool. This requires some development in process
sampling, OES data collection, data treatment algorithms, artificial intelligence techniques and reference materials (RM) for verification of analytical
results. A conservative estimate indicates cost savings of 1 MEuro/Mton; in addition increased competitiveness should mean increased profits.

Title: On-line chemistry of the steel surfaces
Acronym O-Chess
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Improve quality, robustness and up/downstream compatibility of new products (steels, metallic coating organic coatings, PVD) depends on our capacity to
control their surface chemistry (nature, quantity of lateral distribution of oxides, contaminants or cracking residue).
Or recent development of low cost spectrometers, high power source, powerful data processing such as Bayesian network, allow now to create chemical
contact free and multifunctional spectroscopic sensor (UV, vis, NIR, MIR, Raman) able to identify / quantify / map variation of steel surface chemistries.
Objective is then to screen these technologies and to propose for specific applications a pre-industrial solution validated in industrial context.

Title: On-line bulk composition analysis of steel scrap using PGNAA
Acronym SCRAP PROBE
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
All the properties of steel are defined primarily by the chemical composition. Knowledge of the actual composition of the raw materials, mainly the scrap,
is essential for ensuring the correct mixing before melting.
A scrap-analyser based on PGNAA (Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis), which is capable of measuring the elemental composition in loads of
scrap, will be developed, for the on-line bulk analysis of bundled metal scrap in charge buckets.
MCNP-modelling of the system will be performed to determine the optimum neutron energy, shielding etc. The innovative linear neutron generator and
enhanced efficiency gamma detectors will be used. The prototype will be off-line tested in the industrial environment.

Title: Online material characterisation at strip production
Acronym OMC
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
Aim of this research proposal is the extension and the comparison of online, non-destructive material characterisation methods on production lines working
under rough conditions. Several measurement methods will be tested, based on electromagnetic techniques and on laser-ultrasonic.
Whereas the collection of process data is comparably easy, there is a lack of quality data describing the actual state of the product. These data have to be
gained by advanced methods of material characterisation online during production. Based on these values other material parameters shall be calculated
which
directly and online define the final product quality for the customer (e.g. yield strength and tensile strength). These quality parameters can then be used to
detect the relationships to the influencing process variables along the relevant production line e.g. by data mining technologies.

Title: Supporting process and quality engineers by automatic diagnosis of cause-and-effect relationships between process
variables and quality deficiencies using data mining technologies
Acronym AUTODIAG
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The through-process detection of cause-and-effect relationships by investigation of process and quality data with Data Mining techniques has been proofed
to be a powerful possibility to decrease quality deficiencies.
Nevertheless this method is not used area-wide in the companies because of its complexity, the necessary specific knowledge which only few people in the
company have and the missing adaptation of the tools to the specific problems of the steel production. These are the reasons for the consortium to develop,
implement and test robust, practicable and easy-to-use solutions which are specialised to steel quality problems and which overcomes the above
deficiencies.

Title: In-situ analysis of hot dip galvanizing baths
Acronym ZINCANA
:
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The objective of this project is to a method for zinc bath composition measurements based on LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectrometry) system
analyzing inside the bath, adapted for high content and traces elements analysis and optimized for precipitates characterization. Using the instrumental
measurements, the modelling of zinc bath composition will be performed and
comparison to industrial measurements realized. The model could further be used in order to get the influence of process parameters on drosses
precipitation.
The advantage of LIBS compared to other experimental techniques, such as samples or aluminum probes, is that the system can perform on-line
simultaneous measurements of different dissolved elements (Zn, Fe, Al…).
The project is divided into three working areas:
- Laboratory trials of LIBS experiments in order to validate the parameters for zinc bath analysis
- Industrial trials of LIBS measurements both for element analyses (high and low level) and drosses characterization
- Modelling of zinc bath composition and comparison to industrials measurements.
