LMPC 2013(9.22-25, USA)
2013 Liquid Metal Processing & Casting Conference (LMPC)
September 22-25, 2013 · Austin, Texas

The Liquid Metal Processing & Casting Conference (LMPC) is a unique symposium that showcases the latest technological and scientific advances related to those industrial processes used to cast large ingots of highly alloyed metals. The symposium presents a blend of academic and industrial papers on topics including advances in controls and process simulation, ingot defect formation and characterization studies, and process parameter-material properties characterization. The program will include, but is not limited to, the following topics:
  • Primary and Secondary Melt Processing including VIM, VAR, ESR, EBCHR, Plasma Melting
  • Physical Property Measurements of Liquid Metals
  • Casting and Solidification of Liquid Metals
  • Modeling of Metallurgical Processes including Heat/Mass Flow Modeling of Liquid Metal and Solidification
  • Ceramic, Slag and Refractory Reactions with Liquid Metals
  • Refining, Evaporation and Gas/Metal Reactions
  • Fundamentals of Reactions Involving Liquid Metals in Productions Processes
LMPC is an international forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest advances and research in liquid metal processing and casting and takes place every two years. The symposium was held in Nancy, France, in 2011 and Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 2009.
