To gain greater insights about how United States steel mills can become more competitive and efficient, Purdue Calumet’s CIVS hosted an information-gathering workshop and planning session Tuesday (12/2) on campus for steel industry insiders.
Some 85 Hammond High School students and their teachers are coming to Purdue University Calumet’s Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) Friday (12/5) to participate in a simulated learning experience designed to advance insights about distributive justice.
Foreign steelmakers have advantages like cheap labor, government subsidies and newer mills that weren’t built at least a half century ago.
They have gained ground, capturing 28 percent of market share in the United States so far this year, up from 24 percent last year. But the American steel industry innovates.
A national research project at Purdue University Calumet’s Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation, or CIVS, aims to give U.S. steelmakers a technological advantage in an increasingly glutted global market that some say has 500 million tons of overcapacity.
The Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) was featured in an article in the October 2014 issue of Iron & Steel Technology Magazine (Vol. 11, No. 10, pg. 148-153), a publication of the Association of Iron and Steel Technology (AIST). The article is titled “Leveraging the Power of Visualization to Advance Steel Manufacturing” and highlights the center’s background, focuses, founder and director and collaborations with the association.
