Developing steel more quickly using DENS 3D models
The latest 3D model for developing new types of steel has been presented at the Digitally Enhanced New Steel Product Development (DENS) research programme half-yearly event. Researchers from TU Delft, Eindhoven University of Technology, the University of Twente, and the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf have spent the past three years working on the model. Each of the phases involved in the production of steel now can be simulated in the model. The ultimate aim is to develop the ideal steel - strong and easy to deform.

Materials Science & Engineering Colloquium Series, University of Twente
The Materials Science & Engineering Colloquium Series provides a platform for all those who are interested in materials science, whether you are a student, researcher at MESA+, faculty member, or working in industry. During each session, a challenging case will be presented by an expert, for example from industry. All cases are based on a realistic problem where a solution was found by combining existing materials science knowledge and new insights through an experimental or materials system model approach.
