Modelling and optimal design of refractories for high-temperature industrial applications for a low carbon society

Project description

Improved refractory models for sustainable steel production

The steel industry has long held a strategic place in the EU economy, fostering innovation and growth and providing employment opportunities. To keep up with the increasing demand for steel, it is important to reduce the environmental impact of steel production. The overarching objective of the EU-funded RE-FRACTURE2 project is to develop new computational models for refractory materials that should enable for the first time the simulation of their behaviour over the entire working temperature range. The models will serve as input to the design of components such as refractory nozzles, plates, ladle and tundish slide gate systems with increased energy savings and less production waste. The project will train a new generation of designers who will help Europe achieve sustainable growth in low-carbon society.
