The Book & Publications

Publications written by Tobias Holzmann can are listed below. Additionally, all scientific publications he was working on as first or co-author are added here. The scientific publications were written at the department of »Simulation und Modellierung Metallurgischer Prozesse« at the Montanuniversität Leoben (Austria). The chair is investigating non-metallic and metallic phenomena during solidification and melding. Additionally, electromagnetic interactions are analyzed as well as coating of alloys.
