DEMON, SEVENTH GATE, HELL
It is Halloween; clowns, villains, demons and devils are on the streets asking for treats. We all have our idea of fear and horror, however many materials are born in a truly hellish environment, moving through 6 gates of hell just to enter through the seventh gate into “Nuclear Application”. Understanding materials behavior and components utilized in engineering applications requires understanding of how materials are manufactured. Krampus and his demon friends are going to present how the most common engineering metal, steel, is made from ore to product and how steels are tortured in their final application.
Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure described as "half-goat, half-demon", who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. In traditional parades and in such events as the Krampuslauf (English: Krampus run), young men dressed as Krampus participate; such events occur annually in most Alpine towns. Because he is only committed to terrorizing children in the month of December, Krampus spends the rest of the year studying materials science. The ultimate goal of his research is to eventually break free from the chains of hell.
