Description We have established quantitative links between the magnetic properties (measured by the magnetic sensor system developed by our partner at the University of Manchester) and multiple microstructural parameters and distributions in commercial steels that are of great engineering importance to steel manufacturing and performance.
Exploitation Route The findings can be used to assess the sensor systems developed by our partners at the University of Manchester for commercialisation for more advance evaluation of the steel properties compared.

Title Magnetic Domain Imager with In-situ BH Measurement 
Description A system for dynamic magnetic domain imaging and in-situ BH measurements has been set up. This is believed to be the first time that the in-situ BH measurement can be done during magnetic domain imaging. This system is expected to become a useful tool for fundamental studies and help analysis and interpreting the results by electormagnetic sensors.

Title Preisach Hysteresis Model Considering Microstructural Feature Distribution 
Description A magnetic hysteresis model considering microstructural feature distribution have been developed for modelling major and minor BH loops. The model is anticipated be used to inversely evaluate the microstructural parameters. It is also being used to predict the effects of microstructural feature distributions on magnetic properties and hysteresis behaviours.

PI Contribution Our contribution is the study of the effects of precipitates on the magnetic properties of ferritic steels. This is useful to interpretation of electromagnetic sensor signals which, in turn, is a useful method for product control and inspection of the Tata steel.
Collaborator Contribution The Swindon Technology Centre has made the model steel we developed.
Impact Model steels were developed and have been used for experimental work. Secondly, a micro-segregation model was implemented for design of the steel. This model can be used to assess micro-segration in other steels too.

Results and Impact The Workshop on Electromagnetic Sensors for Microstructure Evaluation was organized and hosted by Professor Claire Davis at the Advanced Steel Research Centre in WMG. Over 50 people attended the event including representatives from Tata Steel, British Steel, Rolls Royce, GE Power, Primetals, Uniper, Tenaris, TVS Motor Company, Beta Technology, Impact PowerTech Organised Dicksons, National Physics Laboratory, National Metallurgical Laboratory in India and Universities of Warwick (department of Physics and WMG), Manchester and Birmingham. It has been well received. There have been many positive feedbacks and follow-up actions from the workshop.
