Montanuniversität Leoben

Montanuniversität Leoben - Chair of Simulation and Modelling of Metallurgical Processes

The Chair is working on numerical modelling of metallurgical processes, such as continuous casting, ingot casting, and electro-slag-remelting. In addition, we are doing basic research on the interaction between turbulence and solidification, flow through dendritic mushy zones and coupled and / or oscillatory growth of peritectics. The last topic will lead to an experiment on the International Space Station (ISS).

Technologies and competences

Using transparent organic components and their alloys as a model substance that allows in-situ and real time observation of metal-like solidification phenomena.

Products and services in space

  • Solidification under diffusive conditions

Space related test benches, laboratories, etc.

For optical investigations of the dynamics of the solidification morphology, a ZEISS microscope with a micro Bridgman-furnace is connected to a self-developed recording system, called Dynamic Imaging of Solidification. During solidification experiments, this system records images simultaneously with relevant process conditions from the furnace.
