Determination of the Cracking Susceptibility of Steel S355J2G3 during the Continuous Casting Process
The paper presents the results of physical modelling aimed at determining the cracking susceptibility of the selected steel grade under conditions characteristic of the continuous casting process. The material used for investigation was steel grade S355J2G3 . For a study on the physical modelling of the continuous steel casting process, the GLEEBLE 3800 [2, 3], a metallurgical process simulator, was employed. The obtained results allowed establishing conditions for a continuous steel casting process that could cause cracks to form in the material being cast. Research on one of technological conditions for steelworks was carried out taking into account the problem of cracking during rolling in the initial group of the bar rolling mill.
