The 31st International Conference on Metallurgy and Materials METAL 2022 took place in Brno on May 18 - 19, 2022. 200 participants from 20 countries listened to 77 lectures and viewed 83 posters. After a two-year break caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the conference could take place this year in the traditional format again.

The conference was opened by Professor Ping. Xiao, who holds the Rolls-Royce/Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair in Advanced Coating Technology. He dedicated his lecture to the topic of surface engineering and coatings for aero-engine applications. The second plenary lecture was given by Assoc. Prof. Mariola Saternus from the Silesian University of Technology in Kawovice. The lecture dealt with the synergistic effect of the optimal of AlNi addition to the zinc bath as an alternative to the baths containing Pb, Bi and Sn.

However, the thematic scope of the conference lectures was traditionally much broader. Researchers presented innovations not only in the fields of advanced iron, cast iron, steelmaking, non-ferrous metals and alloys, metal forming and surface engineering, but also in the economics and management of metallurgical production.

The program also included a commercial presentation by TestForce Ltd. which presented the steps to an optimized and automated lab.

The prize for the best poster has been awarded to Dušan Majtás from the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. In his work, he showed the corrosion of lead and copper coupons and comparison of ageing simulation and real exposure.

The next 32nd METAL conference will take place on May 16 - 19, 2023.

Abstract: The paper presents a modified microstructure evolution model that better considers the influence of strain induced precipitation (SIP) on static recrystallisation (SRX) kinetics. This is achieved by calculating the time for the 50 % softening t0.5 (s) by static recrystallisation separately for the situation when it does not occur and separately when SIP occurs. [..] Read more

Abstract: Due to their higher weight-specific and high-temperature strength, iron-aluminium alloys have a high potential to replace steel in various applications. The good availability of the two materials, the excellent recyclability, lower density with increasing aluminium content and the high corrosion resistance in sulphide- and sulphur-rich environments are further advantages.

Abstract: During cold forming of metastable austenitic steels, a strength-increasing phase transformation induced by externally superimposed stresses occurs in addition to strain hardening. The effect of deformation-induced martensite formation has so far not been utilised industrially in the area of bulk forming, but could be suitable for the production of highly-loaded components in oxidative atmospheres.
