Institute of Materials Modification and Modelling (MMM)is established by Prof. JianShen Pan in 1950s, which is initially a metal heat treatment lab of Materials department of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The institute now focuses on the simulations of temperature, phase transition, density, fluid and electromagnetic coupling in the complicated heat treatment. It pioneers in improving heat treatment processes of advanced materials, designing a new generation of heat treatment equipment with the aid of simulation techniques, developing intelligent control of heat treatment processes. The recent interests of institute include multi-scale simulation of microstructure and mechanical behavior and simulation thermal properties and so on. There are 1 fellow, 2 professors, 5 assistant professors and 2 post doctors in MMM.
