Physical Metallurgy

The target of the “Physical Metallurgy” group is to elucidate scientific fundamentals that can form a basis for the future development and application of novel low-alloyed carbon and stainless steels. This is achieved using physical simulation, laboratory scale rolling, heat treatments, modelling and utilizing various microscopy techniques. The main focus of the research group is concerned with understanding the inter-relationships between processing and fabrication parameters, microstructure and properties such as strength and toughness as well as wear and corrosion resistance. The group works in close cooperation with the other groups of the research unit and numerous partners in Finland and abroad.
