2019 Liquid Metal Processing & Casting Conference

September 8-11, 2019 • University of Birmingham Edgbaston Park Hotel and Conference Centre • Birmingham, UK

Technical Program

The 2019 Liquid Metal Processing and Casting Conference (LMPC 2019) showcases the latest technological and scientific advances related to industrial processes used to cast large ingots of highly alloyed metals. The conference presents a blend of academic and industrial papers on topics that encompass advances in controls and process simulation, ingot defect formation and characterization studies, and process parameter-material properties characterization.

Specific topics planned for LMPC 2019 include, but are not limited to:
  • 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
  • Liquid Metals in Additive Manufacturing Processes
  • 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
  • Modelling and Applications of Casting in Nickel-based Alloys, Steels, and Aluminum
  • Ceramic, Slag and Refractory Reactions with Liquid Metals
  • Refining, Evaporation and Gas/Metal Reactions
  • Fundamentals of Reactions involving Liquid Metals in Productions Processes
