    This work highlights the importance of compositional control and coating thickness of the glaze material on the ZrO2–graphite refractory insert in submerged entry nozzles (SEN). The degradation of the partially stabilized ZrO2 grains starts during pre-heating itself due to the formation of reaction products. Corrosion in later stages is caused by the fragmentation of the aggregate phase and structural damage.

    Especially in roll-forming, designers are still challenged by determining the initial sheet width, since many different approaches exist for this calculation leading to different results. This article compares different experimental approaches to determine the initial sheet width and provides a starting point for further studies to improve the calculation methods.

  4. Reduction Process of Pellet Containing High Chromic Vanadium–Titanium Magnetite in Cohesive Zone

    This paper discusses the softening and melting characteristics, peripheral textures, microstructure of internal core and phase transition of valuable components (Fe, V, Ti, and Cr) of pellet containing high chromic vanadium–titanium magnetite in the cohesive zone of the BF. The Ti(C,N), VN, VC, and FeCr2O4 can be generated in the reduction process.

    Coupling the electromagnetic field, fluid flow, heat transfer and solidification, a 3D numerical model is developed to simulate the billet continuous casting process of high carbon steel with dual electromagnetic stirrings in the this paper. The calculation results help us to understand the fluid flow and solidification during the strand solidification.
