Metallurgy

The Research Group for Metallurgy is led by Prof. Ari Jokilaakso, and our activities cover a large area from the life span of a metal product, starting from the making of metal, continuing with the making of metal products and their behaviour at high temperatures and ending in recycling and waste utilisation.
Aalto-yliopisto, liput / kuvaaja: Aino Huovio

The current research activities focus on physicochemical fundamentals and modelling of metallurgical operations, slags, mattes, ceramics and other high-temperature materials. Processes that benefit from this research include modern extractive and refining processes for ferrous and non-ferrous metals, casting and solidification as well as materials synthesis and behaviour at high temperatures. The main emphasis is on better understanding of metallurgical phenomena by combining experimental studies with computer simulation and modelling.

The Group’s strengths include expertise in thermodynamics, kinetics and transport phenomena as well as solid qualification in experimental research and material characterization.
