Metal Working

Published: 22 March 2022

Metal working is about evaluating the behaviour of metals during forming, with regard to both material- and process dependent parameters, such as microstructural evolution, mechanical properties and modelling.

The course includes metallurgy, from slabs to final product including heat treatment. You will learn to analyse and simulate metal processing with simple empirical and semi-empirical methods, and you will be introduced to finite element modelling of rolling. The course consists of lectures, exercises and home assignments.

The course is multidisciplinary, combining materials science and solid mechanics. The steel industry has a spoken need of future engineers with this unique combination of competences.
