  4. 4. Macrosegregation Prediction in Continuously Cast Steel Slabs

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Malek Al-Ameri; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : A prediction model [3] of macrosegregation in continuously cast steel slabs developed by Barber et al from Corus Teesside Technology Centre, UK as an extension of the work of Miyazawa and Schwerdtfeger [4] is presented in this thesis. Improvements have been made in the model to include the effect of many bulges between the supporting rolls induced by the ferrostatic pressure exerted on the solidifying shell by the liquid phase, which were approximated following a deflection of an elastic beam model.
