Gerdau, a publicly traded steelmaker, will introduce changes in its layoff arrangement (temporary suspension of employment), which was scheduled for December at the company’s mill in Divinópolis. Under this arrangement, workers would be excused from work, but would remain hired and paid. According to Afonso Gonzaga, regional president of FIEMG (the Industry Association of Minas Gerais), the announcement is encouraging.

Carnegie’s father, Will, was a hand weaver who fell victim to the machine competition of the industrial revolution. Andrew, as a child, had looked up to his father as Will was a known…
focused on the development of Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS). The AHSS include Dual Phase (DP) steels, [1–10], High Strength Low Alloy steels (HSLA), Transformation Induced Plasticity (TRIP) steels, Twinning Induced Plasticity (TWIP) steels, and medium manganese steels, (Bouaziz et al., 2013). The majority of the research are focused on the development of third generation of steels due to interest in the mechanical properties of high manganese steels. Only recently the TWIP steels have…
Part A: General Topic
Properties of stainless steel
• Corrosion resistant
• Good tensile strength
• Good low and high temperature service
• Has a respectable friction coefficient
Stainless steel has a chromium-rich rust protective oxide thin film on the surface known as a passive layer, in which prevents corrosion by blocking oxygen diffusion to enter the passive layer and spreads rust into the internal material. As seen in Figure 1,…
