Research Areas Include:
  • Kinetics and Thermodynamics of High Temperature Reactions in Materials Processing and Service.

Current Activities:

  • Iron and Steelmaking including: removal of residual elements from steel (See AISI web site), control of phosphorus and sulphur via slag metal reactions; reduction of oxides from slags; removal of residual elements from steel and kinetics of dissolution of refractory oxides in slags.
  • High Temperature Corrosion including: High temperature corrosion of engineering ceramics in combustion atmospheres; corrosion of engineering ceramics by liquid metals and fluxes; and the relative rates of competing chemical reactions in simultaneous oxidation sulphidation of metals.
  • Additional interests: Attack of refractories by mould fluxes; transport properties of mould fluxes; and development and manufacture of novel refractory compositions in non ferrous extraction, alloy thermodynamics, carbothermic reduction of complex ores and high temperature corrosion of metals.
