Simulation study on oriented nucleation in electrical steel

Electrical steel is used as a core material in electric devices, such as motors and generators. With the rising demand on electrical energy (e.g. electrical cars) an improvement of their magnetic properties is required. Those properties strongly depend on the microstructure that is tailored during their heat treatment. With the objective of predicting the microstructure and texture evolution in these materials during their heat treatment, computer simulations will be performed. The investigation will be focus on the different parameters that affecting the microstructure during heat treatment. The input for the simulations will be taken from experiments.
