CIVS to Collaborate with ArcelorMittal and Oak Ridge National Lab on an HPC4Mfg grant

September 18, 2020

CIVS received a High-Performance Computing for Manufacturing Program (HPC4Mfg) grant from the Department of Energy’s Office of Advanced Manufacturing.  CIVS will collaborate with ArcelorMittal and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to use high performance computing to help reduce steel yield loss due to improper homogenization or cleaning of steel in the refining ladle.

The project will leverage CIVS’ simulation and visualization expertise, ArcelorMittal’s operation expertise, and ORNL’s complex system reduced-order modeling expertise and HPC resources.  Reduced order modeling using simulation and industry data will be used for real-time process control improvements, enabling ArcelorMittal to enhance its productivity, energy efficiency and product quality.
