Achievements

  • Achievements include research in constitutive equations that describe the hot deformation of fire-refined copper. Discovery of only CuzO precipitates are responsible for hardening fire-refined coppers at warm deformation temperatures. Research in optimal hot forging conditions for fire-refined coppers (99.9% coppers with up to 1000 ppm of residual elements including low amounts of oxygen).
