Antonio Gorni On Line


Welcome to my Home Page - the main gate to my WWW pages!

In addition to Personal Information, these pages contain some info about my activities as Research Engineer in Brazilian integrated steelworks (Companhia Siderúrgica Paulista - COSIPA and Gerdau Ouro Branco), as the technical editor of the magazines Plástico Industrial (Industrial Plastics) and Corte e Conformação de Metais (Metal Cutting and Forming), and technical contributor of the magazines Fundição e Serviços (Foundry and Services) and Máquinas e Metais (Machines and Metals).

So here is a list of my Technical Publications Written in English, which includes papers about development and modelling of hot rolling processes, development of hot rolled flat products like dual phase and microalloyed steels, batch annealing of steel coils, statistical/scientific software and so on.

It is also available some Scientific Freeware, that is, listings of some simple scientific programs developed by me, about Statistics/Data Handling, Quantitative Metallography and Hot Rolling Models.

The Portuguese Version of my home page includes a section about the basics of polymer materials, my publications in Portuguese language and my favourite technical and personal Internet links.

If you are a railfan, then please visit the Photo Album of the Brazilian Railroads! Some of by best rail photos can be seen at Rail Pictures and Railroad Forums. Other rail photos and assorted images taken by me can be found at my fotologs hosted at FotoPages!

To close this introduction, I would like to salute you with a little sample of the most spectacular rock masterpiece ever recorded:

Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends
We're so glad you could attend
Come Inside! Come Inside!
There behind a glass is a real blade of grass
Be careful as you pass
Move along! Move along!

Come inside, the show's about to start
Guaranteed to blow your head apart
Rest assured you'll get your money's worth
The greatest show in Heaven, Hell or Earth!

You've got to see the show, it's a dynamo
You've got to see the show, it's rock and roll...

These verses, written by Greg Lake and Pete Sinfield, were extracted from the song Karn Evil 9, First Impression, included in the album Brain Salad Surgery by Emerson, Lake and Palmer. The motto of this album was beautifully defined by a fan as being "Sing a religious hymn and dive in technological hell"...
