Continuous Casting of Advanced Steels of Near-Peritectic Composition
The automotive industry is increasingly utilizing advanced high-strength steels, primarily to reduce the mass of motor vehicles. However, many of these steels fall within the peritectic composition range, which are notoriously difficult to cast by continuous casting techniques. Against this background, a brief review is given of our current understanding of the peritectic reaction as such and the subsequent peritectic phase transformations.
