McMaster Steel Research Centre (SRC)

Based at McMaster University, the McMaster Steel Research Centre’s research program is designed by its member companies to address difficult problems in primary and secondary steelmaking, process optimization and control, hot rolling, advanced high strength steels, and metallic coating technology. Whole-of-process mathematical models have been developed that combine principles of high-temperature chemical thermodynamics and kinetics with data from extensive laboratory and plant trials. The research program is highly collaborative with industry and is strengthened by access to production facilities and the generous advice it receives from prominent steel metallurgists.
