Model Study about the Influence of Superheat on Macrosegregation Formation in Continuously Cast Bloom of Special Steel
Aiming at the facing problems of the actual continuous caster in a certain steel mill, a solidification-process heat transfer model about continuously cast bloom of special steel was first established, then the influence of superheat on macrosegregation formation was studied. It is shown that the crater length will become longer, the shell thickness will become thinner with increasing the superheat. Meanwhile, when decreasing the superheat , the value of will decrease and the value of H will obviously increase, then the equiaxed crystal ratio will be raised greatly. However, the bloom centre solidification time will increase. Consequently, attention should be paid to this point when decreasing the superheat in order to lessen the extent of macrosegregation.
