Description

Project description

Third-cycle subject: engineering materials science

The focus of the project is to develop a sampling technique for improving the use of alloys and materials during steelmaking. The developed technique will be deployed in steelplants combining it with modern IoT communication tools.

In the pilot-scale research, computational simulations will be performed with specialized CFD software packages to design the sampler with specific requirements for steel sampling. Along with the modeling work, laboratory investigatons will be carried out to understand the interaction between steel, slag, and refractory and to develop the required tools. In the later stages of the study, comprehensive plant trials at industrial sites will be conducted for further verification.

You will be required to work in close collaboration with other researchers from industry and reseach institutes in Europe. The project will require a significant amount of modelling work, materials characterization and experimental work in laboratory and industry. Critical assessment of scientific literature and the data collected during the project will be vital. Creative and analytical problem solving skills are also required. Regardless, you should not be afraid of traveling around Europe and staying in other European countries. The majority of the work will be carried out in close collobartion with our industrial partner.

Supervision: Björn Glaser is proposed to supervise the doctoral student. Decisions are made on admission
