Content and learning outcomes
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.
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.
Literature and preparations
Admitted to doctoral studies, in the subject of technical materials science.
Basic knowledge of metallurgical processes.
Course material distributed at the start of the course.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- PRO1 - Project, 6.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
