Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

In-depth knowledge with respect to the manufacturing of clean steel with a focus on non-metallic inclusions as well as tundish technology.

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the course, the student should know:

  • What size and shape of inclusion are harmful for mechanical properties of steel
  • The main sources of inclusions in steelmaking
  • Mechanisms that favour the separation of inclusions from molten steel
  • Equations that can be used to predict the separation rate of inclusions
  • Technological solutions for minimizing inclusions in the production of pure steel.

Course Disposition

The course is given as a self-study course throughout the year. The student contacts the examiner who distributes a course material and the questions that constitute the
intended learning outcomes, including specifications regarding the expected scope of the answer per
intended learning outcomes. The student then writes a report which is submitted to the examiner for review.
