Onuralp Yücel was born in 1961 in Turkey; Onuralp completed his technical education with a PhD in Metallurgical Engineering from Istanbul Technical University (ITU) where he is currently holding the post of Professor since 2002. He was a Visiting Scientist in Berlin Technical University between 1987 and 1988. He carried out Post-Doctoral Studies at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, Socorro, USA between 1993 and 1994. Prof. Yücel has as many as 330 publications/presentations to his credit, which include topics like, technological developments in the production of wide range of metals, ferroalloys, advanced ceramic powders and application of carbothermic and metallothermic processes among others. He was the vice chairman of ITU, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department (MMED) between 2004 and 2007. He has been a director of ITU, Applied Research Center of Material Science & Production Technologies between 2006 and 2012. He is currently the chairman of ITU, MMED since 2016. He is a member of the international advisory board of International Symposium on Boron, Borides and Related Materials (ISBB), International Symposium on Self Propagating High Temperature Synthesis (SHS) and International Metallurgy and Materials Congress (IMMC).
Dr. Yücel’s areas of interest include:
Pyrometallurgy; Pretreatment of concentrates (production of WO3, Sb2O3, As2O3, MoO3), Smelting and reduction of slags, production ferroalloys, alloys and metals carbothermic and metallothermic processes in EAF or in ladle (copper, cobalt, vanadium, chromium, ferroboron, cobalt boron, nickel boron, ferromolybdenum, ferromanganese, silicomanganese, ferrovanadium, ferrotungsten, ferrochromium, nickel-chromium-molybdenum-iron and aluminum-titanium-boron alloys).
Ceramic Powder Production and Processing; Production of carbide, nitride, boride powders and their processing by explosive consolidation or sintering techniques. (B4C, TiB2, ZrB2, SiC, CrB2).
Beneficiation of Industrial Wastes; Production of metals and compounds from galvanizing ash, brass production wastes and vanadium sludges produced aluminum production. Grit production from aluminum, copper and steel slags.
