Computational Materials Processing
The Computational Materials Processing (MatPro) department develops mathematical models for industrial production and processing of materials
IFE has an in-house developed mathematical library based on the finite element method. Our code can be tailor made to various materials and processes. The competence on how to couple microstructural models with macroscopic finite element methods in an efficient way involves the usage of GPU technology. We have a long experience especially from aluminium processes like electrolysis, melt cleaning, continuous casting and welding. IFE is running a DC-casting project with partners Alcoa, Aleris, Arconic and Hydro. Our work is internationally acknowledged with partners from Germany, France, Poland, The Netherlands, UK, USA, Canada and Australia.
