    A comprehensive EAF model used to evaluate the main EAF processes along with their effects on overall energy and mass balance. The model is computationally light and it is designed to estimate the unmeasured process values or to optimize the operation of the EAF in order to reduce power-on time, energy or raw material use.

    The present work indicates that the catalysis of potassium vapor on coke gasification will be enhanced with the increase of potassium content in coke, and reach a limitation when the content of potassium exceeds 3.5 wt%. And the catalysis of potassium vapor on coke gasification is mainly embodied by reducing gasification temperature and increasing the pre-exponential factor, which may mean increasing active carbon sites.

  3. Effects of Strain and Deformation Temperature on Bainitic Transformation in a Fe–C–Mn–Si Alloy

    The effects of strain and deformation temperature on bainitic transformation are investigated. The amount of bainite first increases and then decreases with strain at a certain deformation temperature. The peak value strain (PVS) increases with the increase of ausforming temperature, whereas the corresponding maximum amount of bainitic transformation decreases.

  4. The Effect of Bake-Hardening Parameters on the Mechanical Properties of Dual-Phase Steels

    The effect of bake-hardening (BH) parameters, namely pre-strain, baking temperature, and holding time, on yield strength increment of DP steels with different martensite volume fractions is investigated. The results show that maximum yield strength is obtained as optimum values of BH parameters are applied. The increment of pre-strain enhances the Lüders band and decreases the yield strength increment.

  5. Dynamic Tensile Testing of Ultrahigh Strength Hot Stamped Martensitic Steels

    Tensile testing over strain rates of 0.001–200 s–1 is performed on four hot stamped (HS) martensitic steels, including 22MnB5 and 38MnB5. The unique response of 38MnB5 to increasing strain rate, marked by significantly higher tensile strength and ductility, gives rise to significantly higher toughness than 22MnB5 at the higher strain rates.
