Computational Based Design of New Materials and Processes

The RWTH Aachen Steel Institute is active in teaching and in the research of the fields steel production and processing as well as the application of metallic materials. The education we offer, and our classes for continuing education, is given at a scientific and application-oriented level. Our research projects are both based in the fundamentals and being relevant for real-life problems. The projects concern current questions and thus, scientifically contribute to solving actual problems in the industry.

Integrating computational materials modelling into materials and process design towards advanced steels with tailored properties and optimizing production processes:

  1. ThermoCalc: use of thermodynamic data bases for phase development
  2. JMatPro: Evaluation of transformation and properties
  3. Metallography: Quantitative description of multiphase microstructures
