Mid January Bulletin

15 January 2009 - Resources on AHS Steels - Bulletin 33


Please find here our new Mid Month Bulletin that we offer with the purpose of providing useful online information easily accessible to our readers, either now or at some later date.

Therefore may we suggest that you save or bookmark this page for your future reference.

Readers may recall that the subject of Advanced High Strength Steels was briefly introduced (7) in Issue 65 of Practical Welding Letter for January 2009. Click on PWL#065 to see it.

Now we present a few online Resources on that matter. It is amazing that the long list following hereafter barely scratches the surface of the amount of information available.

Although the subject cannot be covered thoroughly in a short page like this one, nevertheless I hope that interested readers will get an idea of the importance of the new materials and on their influence in actual production.

For any questions, comments or feedback please send us a message by e-mail. Don't use REPLY, use Contact Us instead.

Note: The addresses reported hereafter were live and correct at the time of their publication. There is no guarantee that they will be always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.

Note: References to articles or other documents are given here in one of two forms. If the links are "live" (usually underlined or otherwise highlighted) they are operated with a click of the mouse.

If they are URL's (Uniform Resource Locator), which is the analogue of an address, they begin with "http://..." or "www.". These are not live and must be copied and pasted entirely into the browser (after having selected them with the mouse or otherwise). If they are long they may be displayed in two or more lines. In that case one has to care that the URL be copied completely in a single line without any space, and Enter.

If the information is important to you, you may save the selected pages in a suitable folder on your Computer for easy reference.
