School group work

Summer course on EPM topics for PhD students

Summer course will consist of lectures and workshops on EPM topics. Course is adapted for Online environment. 

Course will cover measuring methods in liquid metals and numerical simulation of EPM processes. During course students will listen lectures of various topics and will do the practical work and numerical modelling exercises of EPM related topics.
