@ with and Interactive Simulations In The Teaching Of Metallurgy Peter Goodhew, Andrew Green and David Naylor University of Liverpool MATTER International Iron & Steel Institute European Aluminium Association
@ with and 2 Why teach metallurgy? Metallurgy is unfashionable but still very important Society uses a lot of steel, aluminium, copper and other metals It is an excellent meso-scale enabling activity between science and engineering
@ with and 3 Interactive simulations can help student understanding have been written for aspects of steelmaking (see oral presentation by Ruth Hambleton) … and aluminium, demonstrated here.
@ with and 4 Simulation of yielding Note the interactivity
@ with and 5 Machine turning of Al Note the interactivity
@ with and 7 Why bother with simulations? Enable inaccessible experiments Permit repeat experiments Enable learning by doing Encourage exploration of variables Can be competitive Collaboration with industry can be rewarding
