Focus Areas & Development Areas of University of Oulu

The specific idea and the main advantage of CASR is that it covers the whole chain of steel processing from raw material handling to the mechanical properties of steel and the fabrication of final products, i.e. process control, process and physical metallurgy based design and prediction of chemical compositions, microstructures and the rolling stage, and finally modelling the relationships between huge industrial processing data and the properties of novel steel grades. Future manufacturing technologies are also covered. For industrial partners CASR provides an easy access to the multidisciplinary research of the University of Oulu. The research portfolio at CASR is aimed at providing basic research, innovations and education to support the prosperity of the Finnish steel and engineering industry. More than 80 research scientists and graduate students are working in the centre.
