Research group Material Processing and Modelling

We contribute to improving the sustainability of metallurgical and manufacturing industries by optimizing the use of raw materials, energy, and process development. We improve material properties and product performance by exploring the relationship between process, microstructure, property and performance.

Our research activities focus on modelling at different length scales combined with experimental investigations, digitalization of research data, and application of Artificial Intelligence.

We apply our core competences to multiple market segments and combine modelling using commercial and in-house software with experimental approaches to solve industrial problems, covering the life cycle of products.
