[Faculty]Professor Park Ju-hyeon Receives the ‘EPD Science Award’ for the Best Paper from the American TMS

Professor Park Ju-hyeon Professor Park Ju-hyeon from the Department of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering was chosen as the recipient of the ‘2020 TMS EPD (Extraction & Processing Division) Science Award’ from the American TMS (The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society). The EPD Science Award is an honorary award, which is given for the best single paper issued in the last two years within the chemistry field, including JOM, an SCI journal that TMS issues, Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A & B, Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy, and other proceedings. The awarded paper is titled “Effect of Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) on Dephosphorization of Molten Steel by Electric Arc Furnace Slag (Heo Jeong-ho, Park Ju-hyeon),” which was issued in Metallurgical and Materials Transactions B in December 2018. Additionally, Heo Jeong-ho, Ph. D., now working at LS-Nikko Copper inc, was the first author of the paper while he was studying for his doctorate degree. In the paper, the authors observed slag generation when putting direct-reduced iron to reduce the carbon dioxide emission of steel production, and they thermodynamically defined the causes of the impurity element (P) steel cleanness reduction. This research was part of a research project of national “Alternative Steel Based Steel Producing Process Carbon Dioxide Emission Reduction Technology Development (Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy).” This event is meaningful since he was the first person in 47 years to receive the award as a Korea-based institute researcher. The awarding ceremony for the 2020 TMD EPD Science Award will be held at the 149th TMS Seminar in San Diego on February 25th, 2020. Professor Park Ju-hyeon also received the ASM-TMS Marcus Grossman Young Author Award from the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society America in 2014, the ISIJ Sawamura Award from the Iron and Steel Institute of Japan in 2017, the New Academic Award from the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society Korea in 2012, and the New Academic Award for the Best Faculty (International Paper) of the ERICA Academic Award in 2018 and 2019.

Both Hanyang alumns applied for the Digital Design & Fabrication category. Yang Seung-gyu exhibited "Power Equipment BIM VR, AR," and Park Joo-hyung presented "Intensive City." Hanyang University graduates won two of the top three awards in this year's competition, where the grand prize winner is nonexistent. Yang Seung-gyu exhibited the use of digital technology, VR and AR, based on BIM technology to improve the understanding of the officials from the design and construction stages of power facilities and KEPCO office buildings. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a technology that integrates and manages all information used into 3D shapes and data throughout the life cycle of building design to demolition. Yang said, "I am honored to be awarded at this competition where outstanding works from various fields related to construction (industry, education, and research) were contested." ▲ "Power Equipment BIM VR, AR" was presented by Yang Seung-gyu, an Urban & Real Estate Development major from the Graduate School of Real Estate Convergence. Park Joo-hyung said that his work, 'Intensive City,' intended to present architecture using higher-level intelligence machinery and technology. As the subject of production shifts, from humans to machines, with higher levels of intelligence and performance, Park tried to convey a message that architecture will continue to be planned, produced and replaced in a continuous, single configuration, creating space with tight efficiency. "I am grateful for being highly appreciated, despite the lack of content," Park said. He added, "It is all thanks to Hanyang University's Architecture department, which has provided a high level of education, experience, and opportunities." ▲ Part of the "Intensive City" entry by Park Joo-hyung, an Architecture major in College of Engineering Meanwhile, the 2019 Competition in Digital Architecture (DA2019) is co-organized by the Architectural Institute of Korea, the Architecture & Urban Research Institute, the Korea Appraisal Board, and the Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology.
