6th International Conference on Modelling and Simulation of Metallurgical Processes in Steelmaking (SteelSim) 2015 Lake Garda

  • Conference Call
  • The 6th International Conference on Modelling and Simulation of Metallurgical Processes in Steelmaking (SteelSim) will be organized by Associazione Italiana di Metallurgia (AIM), the Italian Society for Metallurgy, in Bardolino, Italy on September 23 – 25, 2015 at the Congress Center of Aqualux Hotel Spa Suite & Terme.

    Nowadays, the modelling and simulation of metallurgical processes covers an important role in optimizing technological processes, decreasing production costs, increasing steel quality and defining the correct design of metallurgical processes in order to improve their sustainability even from the environmental point of view. The fundamentals of metallurgical processes can be deeply investigated through physical and numerical modelling according to several numerical approaches.

    Traditional and new mathematical techniques applied by modern simulation facilities allow to achieve several interesting and useful results to understand physical interaction and to design a profitable metallurgical process. The simulations technique can be applied to the different steps of the metallurgical production route: production and refining of liquid metals, solidification, plastic deformation, thermo-​mechanical processes, thermal treatment, verification of structural reliability etc..
