Course content

The course is given every second year, next time will be spring 2017. The course aims at a deeper understanding of metallurgical thermodynamics and reaction kinetics, and their interaction in high-temperature, heterogeneous metallurgical processes. The following main topics are treated: methods for measurements and estimation of thermodynamic data, phase stability diagrams for for multi component systems, thermodynamic relations for liquids and their equilibria with solid phases and gases, selected statistical models for liquid mixtures of metals and salts, structure of slags and their reactions with liquid metals and the gas phase.
The course will especially cover heterogenous reactions between solids and a fluid (gas or liquid), reactions between solids through gaseous intermediates and between two fluids e.g. slag and metal.
Electrolytic processes are not part of the course.

Learning outcome

After completing this course the student will be able to: -Describe the interaction between thermodynamics and reaction kinetics in high-temperature, heterogeneous metallurgical processes and have detailed knowledge of the application of this understanding to selected process examples.
- Describe methods for thermodynamic measurements, - Describe the principles for estimation of thermodynamic data, - Explain phase stability diagrams for solid systems, and gas/solid equilibria for multi component systems, - Describe thermodynamic relations for liquids and their equilibria with solid phases and gases. selected statistical models for liquid mixtures of metals and salts, structure of slags and their reactions with liquid metals and the gas phase.
The student will also be able to: - Describe heterogenous reactions between solids and a fluid (gas or liquid), reactions between solids through gaseous intermediates and between two fluids e.g. slag and metal.
The student will further have basic knowledge of the basic principles of reaction engineering applied to the construction and analysis of metallurgical processes mainly for the production of metals, including the design of reactors for such processes. - The student will be able to use the aquired knowledge on own research problems
