Paper Title:
Effects of Alloying Elements on the Microstructure of 22CrMoH Gear Steels Billets
  Abstract

In this study, the temperature field distribution of 22CrMoH billet is first obtained by simulating continuous casting process using moving boundary method. On the basis of the above data, the microstructure of 22CrMoH gear steels billet was simulated based on CAFÉ (Cellular Automaton – Finite Element Analysis) method, together with the effects of alloying elements such as Cr, Mo, Si, Mn on the microstructure of this billet. The simulated result agrees reasonably well with that of the actual product. And it suggested that under the reasonable extend of current steel grade, the increased amount of Si and Mn can steadily widen the proportion of equiaxed grains, lead to the increase in equiaxed grain amount, hence the decrease in equiaxed grain average radius; The increase in Mo content is able to enhance the nucleation amount; Proper decrease in Cr content favors the increase in proportion of equiaxed grains, but little effects on grain’s amount and radius. Further, the composition of alloy elements under the specified scope of 22CrMoH grade was optimized and the simulated results showed that the microstructure has vastly improved, as the proportion of equiaxed grain rose nearly doubled, the grains amount has increased by 19.96%, and average radius has decreased by 9.20%.
