In conjunction with an industrial PhD
project on advanced process
control of continuous casting of iron we offer a project on modelling of heat
transfer in the die in a continuous casting unit. The project focus on a key
element of the production process: the water-cooled die in which the liquid
metal cools to form a solid strand. The aim of the project is to describe heat
flow from the liquid iron through a composite die consisting of graphite and
steel to the surrounding cooling water, and to be able to optimise the shape of
the cooling water channels so that a uniform and efficient cooling is obtained.
The model will
be calibrated with temperature measurements from the production of cast iron
components so that we can ensure that it correctly reflects the actual
production process. You will work together with an industrial PhD student,
production engineers at Tasso and supervisors at DTU and take part in discussions
on process optimisation based on the results you obtain during the project.

is carried out in close co-operation with Tasso A/S, which is an internationally
focused company and one of Europe’s leading producers of continuous cast iron
bars. The company exports more than 90% of the production. The customers are
found in the hydraulic industry, wind turbine industry, pump- and compressor
industry plus many more. The company’s quality, environmental and energy management
systems are certified according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 50001. Tasso A/S
prioritize sustainable manufacturing and behavior. The company is a part of the
Vald. Birn group.
