Steelmaking by Using ASTM Standards Webinar

    About the Course

    Join John Bringas, P.Eng., from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET on December 5th, 2019 for this webinar.

    This webinar is designed to help you:

    • improve your understanding of basic steelmaking practices by applying ASTM steel standards;
    • write better steel specifications and purchase orders by using ASTM Standards;
    • perform better QC checks on steel products before, during, and after product delivery in accordance with ASTM standards requirements.

    Learning Outcomes

    The following learning outcomes will be achieved upon completion of this webinar:

    • Identify the steelmaking processes that use the basic oxygen furnace (BOF) and electric arc furnace (EAF), as applied in ASTM steel standards.
    • By applying ASTM standards, distinguish between:
      • "heat" and a "lot" of steel,
      • "heat analysis" and "product analysis",
      • "ingot" and "continuous strand casting" processes,
      • "rimmed" steel, "semi-killed" steel, and "killed" steel, and
      • "BOF/EAF" steel and refinement by "ladle metallurgy furnace" practice

    Who Should Attend

    This webinar is designed for all people that work with ASTM steel standards or simply want to learn more about steels and steelmaking.


    The fee is $99 per person. After registering you will receive an email within two to three business days with information about how to access the webinar. In addition to the webinar, you'll get 7-day access to a recording of the webinar.
