ATHOR, an innovative research project dedicated to Advanced Thermomechanical multiscale modelling of Refractory linings, is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action European Training network – Innovative Training Network (ETN ITN). ATHOR is an innovative, collaborative and interdisciplinary project that brings together 7 academic beneficiaries and 8 private partners.
The ATHOR network is deeply committed to provide a combination of research and trainingactivities which will support and enlarge the initiative of the Federation for International Refractory Research and Education (FIRE).
The network is dedicated to the training of researchers in the required multi-engineering fields for a better understanding of thermomechanical behaviour of the refractory linings used in I&S applications. The project covers all the main features of thermomechanical analysis of refractory linings including material characterization, impact of corrosion on thermomechanical properties, thermal shock resistance, modelling of non-linear thermomechanical behaviours, instrumentation of industrial devices and measurement in operation conditions.
The 15 ESRs (Early Stage Researchers) will take advantage of the most sophisticated numerical tools to model, design and predict the life of different lining configurations in critical operational conditions.
Being trained in scientific, technical and soft skills, these ESRs are the next generation of highly employable scientists and engineers in the refractory sector and related areas.
