Introduction into Rietveld quantification for cement and mining industry

The course is intended for users from various industries (cement, mining and others). It gives a basic introduction into the principles of Rietveld quantification. The focus is on practical aspects like the creation of control files, the refinement strategies for simple and complex materials, and the fine-tuning of control files. For the training, several examples from industrial applications will be used (raw materials, clinker, cement, ores). A knowledge on the Rietveld method is not required to attend the course.
