Research Area Continuous Casting and Cleanness – M2CC

Welcome to the homepage of the research group M²CC at the Chair of Ferrous Metallurgy.

The primary focuses of this research group are various specific areas relating to the continuous casting process and cleanness relevant aspects. The group arises from former Christian Doppler Laboratory for Metallurgical Fundamentals of continuous casting processes (CDL-MCC).
