AK Steel collaborates with U.S. DOE

Ohio-based AK Steel has announced it has accepted an award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) Program. The program’s USD$300,000 award will support the use of the DOE National Laboratory’s advanced computing resources where the collaborative research with AK Steel will take place to help drive innovation in manufacturing processes.

Researchers from AK Steel will collaborate with scientists from the Computational Engineering Division of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to build a Fast-Acting Reduced Ordered Model (FA-ROM) to predict the properties of a finished steel coil after hot rolling. This effort is to continue improving product consistency, provide immediate feedback on product quality, and to save time, money and energy by reducing expensive industrial trials. This research also will complement current Artificial Intelligence (AI) models used in the manufacture of AK Steel’s portfolio of innovative steel products.
