University Impact on Thermomechanical Processing in Corus
After discussion of general issues regarding University/Industry collaboration, some examples are described of how this impacts upon Corus (now part of Tata Steel), including roll friction, work-roll performance, and phase transformation including its detection on line. The deployment of the academic research invokes varying levels of associated industrial RD&T, whether through parallel projects or follow-up projects. Various modes are employed from PhD/EngD student projects through to collaborative consortia. By whatever model, effective collaboration between universities and industries clearly requires the removal of the boundary between the two.
