A technical paper written by researchers of Purdue University Calumet’s Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) and AK Steel about a way to improve steel production based on a concept developed at the steel company’s Dearborn, Mich. Works has been selected to receive a national award this spring.
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.
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.
