Technical Program Details

Don’t miss this opportunity to share your work and connect with leaders to discuss the latest developments in liquid metal processing research.
LMPC 2017 is a unique event that showcases the latest technological and scientific advances related to those industrial processes used to cast large ingots of highly alloyed metals. The conference presents a blend of academic and industrial papers on topics including advances in controls and process simulation, ingot defect formation and characterization studies, and process parameter-material properties characterization. The program includes but is not limited to the following topics:
  • Primary and Secondary Melt Processing including:
    • Vacuum Induction Melting (VIM)
    • Vacuum Arc Remelting (VAR)
    • Electroslag Refining (ESR)
    • Electron Beam Cold Hearth Remelting (EBCHR)
    • Plasma Melting
  • Physical Property Measurements of Liquid Metals
  • Casting and Solidification of Liquid Metals
  • Modelling of Metallurgical Processes including Heat/Mass Flow Modelling of Liquid Metal and Solidification
  • Ceramic, Slag and Refractory Reactions with Liquid Metals
  • Refining, Evaporation and Gas/Metal Reactions
  • Fundamentals of Reactions involving Liquid Metals in Productions Processes
