Key Research areas

We all work together within our unit, so that we get the greatest possible amount of collaboration and cooperation. We do not divide ourselves into research groups, but our work naturally falls within areas. These themes are outlined below, and each dedicated page lists the academic(s) who spend most of their time within those areas, but we all get involved in every area to some extent.

  • Casting
    • Ingot casting
    • Continuous casting
    • Remelting
    • Solidification
  • Circular economy of metals

    • Critical materials

    • Recycling of slag

    • Energy consumption

    • Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions

  • Clean steel
    • Reaction thermodynamics
    • Reaction kinetics
    • Transport phenomena
    • Electrolytic extraction of inclusions
  • Computational fluid dynamics
    • New ingot casting procedures
    • Up-scaling of plasma reduction of oxides
