The Centre's research program is focused on the quantitative description and mathematical modelling of liquid and solid metal processing operations. The MMPC has a particularly strong research program related to the manufacture, processing and characterisation of steels and the light metals. The application of computers in mathematical analyses (e.g., computational fluid dynamics, metal textures), ceramic-metals interactions in process control (e.g. controlled rolling of steel), and in data acquisition and transfer (e.g., metal quality sensor equipment), are central themes of the MMPC's activities.
