RESEARCH GROUP COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY

UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES UPPER AUSTRIA - RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT LTD.

K1-Met

Competence Center for Excellent Technologies in Advanced Metallurgical and Environmental Process Development

K1-Met: July 2012 - May 2015

K1-MET has its focus on the modelling and simulation of metallurgical processes, including metallurgical raw materials and refractoriness with the goal of an optimal process control with respect to product quality, zero waste and the minimization of energy and raw materials.
