    Microscopic dendritic morphology and spot segregation in round blooms produced by different intensities of M-EMS are investigated to elucidate their effect on the segregated bands in hot-rolled steel pipes. According to the experimental results, enlarging the columnar zone and minimizing the center equiaxed crystal zone are effective to reduce the spot segregation and decrease the occurrence of the segregated bands.

    A general approach is proposed for 3-D coupled FE analysis of the deformation of the strip and rolls in flat rolling. FE formulation, schemes for the treatment of contact occurring in a cluster of deforming objects, and the solution strategy are described in detail. The validity of the approach is examined through comparison with measurements. The approach is applied to the analysis of deformation occurring in a four-high mill and also in a six-high mill.

  3. Clarification of the Dissolution of Solid CaO and the Phosphorus-Enrichment Capability of Calcium Silicates in the Multiphase Slag Based on the Ion and Molecule Coexistence Theory

    An ion and molecule coexistence theory based on the thermodynamic model has been developed in this article. According to the calculated mass action concentration of the related structural units, the reaction mechanism between solid CaO and the liquid slag in the multi-phase slag is explained, and the phosphorus-enrichment capability of calcium silicates is probed.

  5. Formation Mechanism of Complex Oxide Inclusions in 55SiCr Spring Steels

    In the current study, the complex oxides are extracted from steel samples with different methods. Based on the wettability between the molten steel, solid MgO inclusions and liquid inclusions, a mechanism for the formation of complex oxides is suggested, that is, the solid core is wrapped by liquid inclusions in the molten steel.
