Three recent Purdue University Calumet engineering students collaborated with the university’s Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) and the Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST) in developing an innovative tool that enables greater worldwide understanding of the steelmaking process.
The Association for Iron & Steel Technology has released a press release describing their collaboration with CIVS on the creation of the Making, Shaping and Treating of Steel® Wheel.
The Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST) and CIVS have created a 3D visualization of an interactive version of the Making, Shaping, and Treating of Steel Wheel. The Steel Wheel is a graphical representation of the processes required to convert raw materials into finished steel products. The 3D visualizations on the wheel include detailed models equipment and animations to show the functions and sequence of each process.
ArcelorMittal has posted two articles which feature CIVS on their website, usa.arcelormittal.com. For companies who have not worked with CIVS before, the articles offer a rare glimpse into the experience of working with the center. One article covers the aspects of working with the center from a research project perspective and describes how using Computational Fluid Dynamic modeling has benefited the company.
