Steel research is chiefly driven by the desire to produce steels with tailor made microstructure and properties suited to diverse applications. Significant progress has been made in understanding the influence of alloying elements, hot deformation of austenite and its controlled decomposition during cooling. Physical simulation coupled with mathematical modeling and other advanced techniques have proved to be techno-economically attractive in improving metallurgical processes, leading to enhancement in quality of contemporary products and development of new products.

The 4th International Conference on Thermo-Mechanical Simulation and Processing of Steel (SimPro'16) was organized during February 10 – 12, 2016. Focus of the conference was various simulation techniques and their applications in steel research and recent advances in thermo-mechanical processing. This conference was an opportunity for scientists and technologists from research/ academic institutes, and manufacturers to share their experience in producing high value products.
