Effects of Modification on Stress Field of the Inclusions in Large Rudder Arm Steel Casting
The influences of non-mentallic inclusions on the quality and properties of the steel are depended not only on the quantity of inclusions, but also on the type、shape、size、deformation behavior and distribution condition. The effects of lanthanide rare earth(RE) on the shape、size and distribution condition of inclusions in large rudder arm steel casting is investigated. It was proved that the shape and distribution of inclusions could be improved in the large rudder arm steel casting, and the plastic and toughness of the steel can be increased obviously by the rare earth modification. By means of ANSYS finite element analysis software, the stress field distribution around matrix was simulated, and the reaction mechanism of inclusions by modification was clarified.
