Main SMMP Research Fields
Since the foundation of the chair for ‘Simulation and Modelling of Metallurgical Processes’ (SMMP) in 2003, many industrial relevant research projects have been worked on. Important to mention is the establishment of three Christian-Doppler Laboratories over the years (2004-2011: ‘Multi-phase simulations of metallurgical processes’, A. Ludwig, 2011-2018: ‘Process simulation of solidification and melting’, M. Wu, 2018-2025: ‘Magnetohydrodynamical applications in Metallurgy’, A. Kharicha). Together with achievements from other projects, the expertise that was gained in these CD-laboratories had led to the definition of the five key process simulation activities that are presented here. In addition, information about our basic research activity on peritectic coupled growth is given.
