- Process Modeling and Simulation of Biochar Usage in an Electric Arc Furnace as a Substitute for Fossil Coal
Thomas Meier, Thomas Hay, Thomas Echterhof, Herbert Pfeifer, Tim Rekersdrees, Ludger Schlinge, Sami Elsabagh and Henning Schliephake

The usage of different carbon carriers in the EAF is modeled and simulated with a comprehensive dynamic EAF process simulation model. Therefore, the charge coal is divided into carbon and volatile contents with different reaction rates and the gas phase is further developed. On example of palm kernel shells, the different reaction behavior is reproduced by the simulation.
- High Temperature Corrosive Environment in a Sintering Plant for Pig Iron Production and Its Effect on Different Steel Grades
Harald Rojacz, Lubomir Krabac, Markus Varga, Karl Adam and Günter Fafilek

This study examines high temperature corrosion effects of sintering plants in the pig iron production. A thorough examination of corrosives is given. Materials exposed to such environment suffer from high temperature oxidation and molten salt corrosion at 900°C with chloride and sulphide species. A high relevance of corrosive behaviour to the alloying elements (Cr, Ni, Mn, Si, Ti) is found.
- Effect of Dendritic Morphology and Central Segregation of Billet Castings on the Microstructure and Mechanical Property of Hot-Rolled Wire Rods
Yuan Ji, Haiyan Tang, Peng Lan, Chengjia Shang and Jiaquan Zhang
Version of Record online: 20 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/srin.201600426
The high carbon billets and their hot-rolled wire rods are researched to elucidate the effect of central segregation on the microstructure and mechanical property of the following hot-rolled rods. The way to reduce the central segregation of the billets and improve the mechanical property of the wire rods from the very beginning of casting process has been suggested.
- Effects of Mn Content on the Warm Stretch-Flangeabiliy of C–Si–Mn TRIP-Aided Steels
Koh-ichi Sugimoto, Shin-nosuke Hidaka, Hikaru Tanino and Junya Kobayashi
Version of Record online: 17 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/srin.201600482
Warm stretch-flangeability of 0.2%C–1.5%Si–(1.5–5.0)%Mn TRIP-aided sheet steels is investigated. Warm hole-expansion at TF = 150–250 °C after hole-punching at 25 °C enhanced the stretch-flangeability of 5% Mn steel. Use of hole-drilling instead of the hole-punching further increased the warm stretch-flangeability and raised the optimum expanding temperature to TF = 250–300 °C.
- Improving Cleanliness of 16MnCrS5 Case Hardening Steels by Optimized Active Tundish Flux
Marko Kekkonen, Dirk Leuverink and Lauri Holappa
Version of Record online: 17 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/srin.201600364
High inclusion absorption capacity is a key property of an active tundish slag. In this study, comprehensive thermodynamic calculations are performed to evaluate the capacity of tundish slags with different compositions to absorb inclusions from steel. Industrial trials is then carried out with the slags to verify their functionality.
