Internship: Develop and Implement Heat Transport Model for Steel Slabs in IJmuiden


What's your job?

Within a SWAT team of three interns and an experienced team lead you will build and implement a heat transport model from scratch to predict the temperature of a great number (3000+) of steel slabs.

These slabs are cast from liquid steel at the Steel Plant at a temperature of 1450°C and weigh about 12-38 tons with an average size of 10x1,5x0,2 m. After casting the slabs are rolled into thin and long strips by the Hot Strip Mill at 1200°C.

Between these two factories, the slabs are stored in piles in open air for hours to days. During this period, the slabs cool down at rates that differ considerably per slab, e.g., due to influences of rain, wind and location in the stack relative to other stacks. The Hot Strip Mill requires the slabs to be at 1200°C before rolling so after storage the slabs must be re-heated. Having a real-time model that calculates each slab’s temperature will allow us to optimise rolling sequence and slab re-heating time. This will greatly minimise energy consumption and CO2 emission.
The goal is to have a working model by the end of the SWAT wave. Being part of a SWAT team you will get your own sub task and cooperate with the rest of the team. This will be done in an energetic and agile way so progress and fun is guaranteed!

What's your department?

The Customer Value department of Tata Steel IJmuiden deals with short-term high impact problems by deploying so-called SWAT teams of engineers. A SWAT team solves a structural complex problem in an intensive short-term and agile project (14 weeks). The team usually consists of experienced engineers and trainees. To enable SWAT teams to be successful, a SWAT room is set up on site to present all aspects of the project visually. Management regularly attends the SWAT room to monitor progress, experts and operators come along to share their insights. As an intern, you will experience how it is to be part of our team while working on a technologically challenging subject.
