The post graduate subject Pyrometallurgical Process Analysis (NPM 700), administered by the Department of Material Sciences and Metallurgical Engineering and the Short course on Principles of Pyrometallurgy, administered by CE@UP, will run concurrently in 2009. The differences between the two are:
a) NPM700 has pre-requisites for enrolment whilst the short course does not;
b) The competence of students enrolled for NPM700 are formally assessed through a test and exam whilst delegates enrolled for the short-course will only be issued a certificate of attendance; and
The theme of the year will be the production of manganese alloys and the course will be presented in three modules:
a) Module 1: Overview of production processes and mass and energy balances
b) Module 2: Reaction equilibria and reaction kinetics applied to the production of ferromanganese – theory & modelling in MS Excel
c) Module 3: Pyrometallurgical process analysis techniques applied to the production of ferromanganese – modelling in FACTSAGE
All three modules will be presented in Pretoria. The schedule for and presenters of the modules will be:
a) Module 1: 20 & 21 August (Mrs Joalet Steenkamp, UP www.up.ac.za)
b) Module 2: 8 & 9 October (Mrs Joalet Steenkamp, UP www.up.ac.za)
c) Module 3: 5 & 6 November (Dr Johan Zietsman, Ex-Mente www.ex-mente.co.za)

What should have been a group blog became a personal blog as from October 2009 (although I don't think you will notice the difference). So, here to keeping up to date with the work done by Joalet Steenkamp, member of the pyrometallurgy group of the department of material science and metallurgical engineering at the University of Pretoria.
