The thermodynamic model which quantificationally described the behavior of cerium in heavy rail steel was proposed. From the model, the effects of cerium on the composition, sequence and transformation condition of inclusions and the content of cerium dissolved in heavy rail steel were studied principally. When the cleanliness of heavy rail steel is low, the sequence of inclusions precipitation in heavy rail steel is Ce2O3, Ce2O2S, Ce2S3 and CeS. With increasing the cleanliness of steel, the sequence of inclusions precipitation is Ce2O2S and CeS. At 1783 K, the necessary condition of Ce2O3 precipitation in heavy rail steel is ao/as≥0.186, for Ce2S3 precipitation is ao/as≤0.394. The content of cerium dissolved in heavy rail steel is mainly affected by Ce2S3 inclusion. With the precipitations of all inclusions being stable, the curve between the dissolved cerium content and cerium addition becomes linear.
