-

An integrated system comprising three waste - recycling technologies is developed: the application of sludge after thickening to cool the sinter returns and to humidify the dried components of the sinter burden in place of water; the mechanical treatment of the sludge for use in the sintering process; the blending of the sludge with dried wastes. Considering the fact that some wastes are hydrophobic materials and a great numbers of fine materials are found in the sinter burden, the nodulization of waste mix after the blender and charging of the produced micropellets of sizes 2 – 7 mm into the burden mixer is proposed.

Estimation shows that the ratio of influx of zinc in the blast furnace sludge to the initial charge depends not only on its content in the burden, but also on the quantity of generated wastes.

Proceedings Materials Science and Technology 2007 Conference: Fundamentals and Characterization. September 16-20, 2007 COBO Center, Detroit, Michigan, 2007. pp. 423 - 434

Shear stress-shear strain relationship model for deep drawn metals have been developed using the classical Bernouilli-Euler beam theory. The relationship is derived from the macro mechanical properties of the metal and its tool geometry. The model was used to determine the degree of disorder of the crystal structure (λ), the Taylor hardening factor (M) and dislocation density (K). The developed empirical model can account for small strains in the zone where Voce relation fails. This developed analytical model can be used at the quality control department to determine the homogeneities recovery of rolled sheets after annealing and the likely presence of residual stresses that could enhance stress corrosion cracking.

This paper studies the quench sensitivity of AA 6063. Air, water, brine, spent automobile engine oil and palm olein oil are used as the cooling media. Artificial aging of five of the samples after solution treatment (5600C, at 1 hour) is done at 1750C for 8 hours. The study reveals that the volume and size of the intermetallic Mg2Si formed, which is dependent on the severity of the quenchants affects the mechanical properties of AA 6063. Optimum combination of hardness, tensile strength and ductility over the extruded properties can be obtained with cooling in brine solution after solution treatment.

Proceedings 2nd International Conference on Engineering Research and Developments: Innovations, ICERD08030: 15 – 17 April, 2008, University of Benin, Benin City, 2008 pp. 145 - 151 The paper studies the relative influence of austenizing temperature, quenching media, soaking time, size and shape of materials, and surface condition on the fracture response of plain carbon steel. The study reveals that the fracture toughness decreases with increasing austenitizing temperature and soaking time; and rise when quenching is delayed or at increased plate thickness. Fracture toughness is higher when quenched in oil than in brine solution. The oil and greasy surface records higher value of fracture toughness than clean surface. These results are attributed to the differential distribution of the phase of martensite, ferrite (pearlite) and retained austenite.

(32) D. E. Esezobor and M. O. H. Amuda. Current Issues in Nigeria Steel Development. RPS Publishing Company, Lagos. ISBN-978-065-431-3, 2004, 44 pp This paper identifies and evaluates the circumstances (raw material base, the energy requirement and human resource) under which the development of steel industry in Nigeria is desirable and economically justified. A critical appraisal of the blast furnace technology in the face of new technologies such as the Corex and Fastmet has been attempted. It defines the opportunities for the steel development and derives recommendations as to the governmental and non-governmental role and approach to support the target sector.
