Between 1999 and 2010 I worked a Technical Analist at the Hot Rolling Technical Support Division and then till 2016 as Hot Rolling Specialist. During all these years I was involved in:
Correlation about steel refining processes and defects in flat rolled products;
Development and mathematical modelling of hot strip and plate rolling processes;
Mathematical modeling of hot strength of steel;
Development of controlled rolling processes in the plate mill;
Plate product development;
Development of a Master of Engineering thesis about as-hot rolled dual phase steels;
Development of a Doctor Thesis about hot rolling of HSLA-80 and ULCB plate steels;
Development of heat balances in hot rolling and batch annealing furnaces;
Mathematical and microstructural modelling of the batch annealing process.
