Abstract

Currently, model study is commonly used part of research in field of metallurgical processes. Process of simulation of casting and solidification of steel ingots is no exception. This paper maps possibilities of numerical modelling of casting and solidification of steel ingots, as a part of research of these processes, carried out in Department of Metallurgy an Foundry of Faculty of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering of VŠB-TU Ostrava under the conditions of Regional Materials Science and Technology Center. A few programs and software packages applicable to numerical modelling of ingot casting process are available. These programs provide a wide range of potential results, useful for optimization of ingot casting process and resulting quality of ingots, which are presented in this paper.

Keywords: Steel, ingot casting, numerical modelling, casting and solidification
