    Examines state-of-the-art technological innovations in inclusion identification and prevention, and their applications to steel production.

    Seven comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers from leading experts in the United States, Europe and Asia examine the following key topics:

    Bearing Steels -- Methods for determining internal cleanliness; the impact of inclusions on bearing hardness or strength; and how production and processing methods effect internal cleanliness and bearing life are explored in three papers.

    Stainless Steels -- One paper presents inclusion problems associated with stainless steel medical implants.

    Steel Castings -- Alternative processing modifications and methodologies applicable to the casting industry that would minimize macroinclusions in the final product are reviewed in one paper.

    Steel for Plates -- Optimum production variables to improve the way structural steel plates are made are discussed in one paper; while another examines a new technique for determining the tendency of materials used for pressure vessel applications to crack internally during spin forming.

    For quality control and metallurgical personnel.
