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 article deals with the thermodynamics of the process in the ore-thermal processing of copper smelting slag, the experimental study of ore-smelting processing of copper smelting slag, and the development of a mathematical model for obtaining iron-containing alloys from copper slag, development of a technological scheme for obtaining iron-containing alloys from copper slag-information on the application and approbation of the technology in the production of the results.The assessment of the possible direction of the carbothermic reactions that take place between the oxidised compounds in the slag and the carbon was carried out by changing the thermodynamic values ​​of the system. Thermodynamic analyses were performed, taking into account the temperature dependence of the isobaric-isothermal potentials (Gibbs free energy).. [..] Read more

Abstract: In the conventional powder metallurgy (PM) process route, finished components are produced from metallic powder materials by pressing at room temperature followed by pressureless sintering in a furnace. This simple method for fast and cost-effective processing is not suitable for γ-based titanium aluminides. [..] Read more

Abstract: We follow an alnico alloy sample to non destructive testing using X-ray radiography. X-ray Computed Tomography (CT), also widely known as MicroCT, is a proven method for not only checking the structural integrity of casting parts - for example for porosity - but also for checking a dimensional accuracy.

Abstract: The main objective is to model the plastic behavior of the three aluminum alloys 1050, 2024 and 7075.In the first part, using the experimental results of uniaxial tensile tests for each alloy and in the three main directions, and using a strategy of identifying the parameters of each work hardening model studied, Hollomon, Swift and Voce, we have created an empirical database of 1050, 2024 and 7075 aluminum series alloys.In the second part, one established the curves of uniaxial tensile curve by using the work hardening laws and the experimental parameters obtained in the first part. The comparison with the experimental data shows that the plastic behavior model can successfully describe with the use of appropriate workhardening law for each alloy.. [..] Read more
