Grant C. Centlivre – 2019 Steel Internship Scholar
This summer I was an intern in the quality division at ArcelorMittal Cleveland. One of my biggest projects this summer included working in a team to help resolve an issue involving laminations that were being discovered on the edges of steel coils. In addition, I also worked on creating a model that would predict the temperature of molten steel as it reached the tundish based off of the ladle metallurgy facility (LMF) departure temperature and factors that effect heat loss from the ladle such as aluminum fade, slag volume and scrap addition.
Over the course of the summer, I had the opportunity to get out on the floor and learn about different areas of the mill while also performing data analysis work in the office. The communication, teamwork and technical skills I’ve gained from my projects will help me both in the classroom and in my career moving forward. This internship allowed me to observe how metallurgical theory is applied in the real world and within the steelmaking industry. I would also like to thank both the AIST Foundation and ArcelorMittal for this internship opportunity. This summer I discovered that I would like to pursue a career in steelmaking and am looking forward to begin a career in the industry after graduation.
