Abstract: Microsegregation in general is the consequence of the different solubility of alloying and residual elements in liquid and solid steel. The result is an enrichment of segregating elements between the dendrites due to incomplete diffusion equalization. [..] Read more

Abstract: In the secondary cooling zone of the continuous casting process water-air nozzles are used to cool down the strand. The cooling has to be sufficient enough to ensure a certain shell thickness and finally the complete solidification of the material. [..] Read more

Abstract: The paper deals with the study of key thermophysical properties - phase transition temperatures (liquidus, peritectic transformation and solidus) with use of DTA (Differential Thermal Analysis) and “direct” thermal analysis (TA). Results obtained with these two very often used methods at heating and cooling process are presented. [..] Read more

Abstract: In this work we propose a novel way to simulate solidification during continuous processes using a Generalized Finite Difference Method (GFDM). The meshfree nature of this approach gives the advantage of naturally capture the motion and phase boundaries reconstruction without the need of adaptive remeshing algorithms. [..] Read more

Abstract: The mathematical model and computer simulation for prediction of mechanical properties of cast steel was developed. Because of wide range of applicability and ease of use of finite volume method (FVM), this numerical method was suitable to create integrated computer program for simulation of transient temperature field in process of solidification and cooling of casting.Distribution of hardness of cast steel has been predicted by conversion of calculated cooling times from 800 to 500 °C to the hardness.

Abstract: In the framework of optimising, correct setting of the casting process, knowledge of solidus temperature (TS) and especially liquidus temperature (TL) of produced steel grade is necessary. There are options to determine these temperatures: the use of empirical equations or calculations by specialised programs (thermodynamic databases). [..] Read more

Abstract: Three ferrous materials; Hadfield steel, high chromium white cast iron and austempered ductile iron (ADI) exhibit a similar phenomenon in which soft stabilised austenite transforms to hard martensite on the worked surface. This property is desirable in applications where toughness is required in the bulk of the component while the surface needs to be hard-wearing. [..] Read more
