Oxygen Steelmaking

22. Juni 2020 - 24. Juni 2020

Although oxygen steelmaking is a well-known process there are a lot of current challenges for the operating engineer: the quality of raw materials, process control, different operating practices, modelling, CFD and Industry 4.0. Next to these new questions the seminar programme also includes the important basics ther-modynamics, chemical reactions kinetics, heat and mass balance and a lecture on tramp elements. The participants will learn about modern processes on oxygen steelmaking and will particularly benefit from detailed discussions.
