Papers Invited for ASTM International’s 2nd Bearing and Transmission Steels Symposium

Papers are invited for ASTM International’s 2nd Bearing and Transmission Steels Technology Symposium, to be held May 7-9, 2025, in Toronto, Canada. The event is sponsored by ASTM International’s steel, stainless steel and related alloys committee (A01) and will be held in conjunction with the committee’s standards development meetings.

The objective of the symposium is to bring together rolling bearing and transmission steel practitioners from the steel industry, rolling bearing and transmission product producers and users, research and development institutes and academia to present the latest steel technologies developments.

Topics for this symposium include, but are not limited to:

  • Review of contact mechanics and steel technology requirements in rolling bearing and transmission component contacts;
  • New developments or reviews of steel technologies for rolling bearing and transmission components;
  • Air-melt and re-melt steelmaking process developments for bearing and transmission steels related to cost, quality (value) and environmental considerations;
  • New alloy and heat treatment developments;
  • Developments in bearing and transmission steel quality assessment methods,
  • Advances in rolling contact fatigue testing and sliding contact fatigue testing, including standardization, and relationships with service life;
  • And advances in performance prediction for bearing and transmission components.

To participate in the symposium, authors must submit a 2 to 3-page abstract in the online Abstract Submission Portal no later than Aug. 31, 2024. To ensure your abstract was received into the ASTM database, please email and let us know that you have submitted an abstract.

Additional information is available from technical chair Aidan Kerrigan (
