Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

After the course the student

- can describe the basic unit processes and technologies in ferroalloys and steelmaking production,

- can describe the basics of sulphide smelting and the key processing technologies used for non-ferrous metals,

- knows the fundamentals of solidification and different casting technologies,

- knows the basics of process modelling,

- is able to calculate mass and energy balances as well as perform simple process simulations for industrial production units using computational methods

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The course gives an overview of the most important high-temperature metal making processes. The main focus is in the ferroalloys and steelmaking as well as in the non-ferrous metals. Fundamental principles and technologies will be addressed and computational process modelling will be introduced and practiced.
