Abstract: This paper deals with the characterization of solidification, cooling and expected properties of continuously cast slabs. Semi-empirical models based on theoretical consideration and on the results of heat transfer model are used for characterization of the following: surface and inner temperature distribution of the cast semis, liquid sump depth and shape, liquid motion intensity resulting in centerline segregation, parameters of the primary dendritic structure (primary and secondary dendritic spacings, columnar to equiaxed transition position, CET). This method provides an opportunity to make a realistic comparison between the solidification and final properties of semis with different chemical compositions as a function of applied casting technologies. The final goal of this research activity in the future is to define a comprehensive quality function for optimizing continuous casting technology.

Abstract: Industrial data set with 400 CC (continuous casting) steel slabs were analysed by a statistical method for revealing the real connections between the technological parameters, heat transfer model results and the precisely determined centerline segregation index. Because of the poor correlations a new model was developed in which the shrinkage and deformations of the shells of the slabs can also be taken into account. It has been proved that the stopping of liquid movement below about 30 % liquid ratio plays an important role in the centerline segregation formation. The conclusions of the calculations are in good accordance with the results of the metallographical analysis.

Abstract: In continuously cast semi-finished products, fluid flow results in macrosegregation patterns. There are two reasons for fluid flow during solidification: density differences in the liquid phase and outer forces or constraints, which mix, suck or squeeze the liquid inside. The calculation method described in this paper can be used to analyze the effects of fluid flow caused by outer constraints and to estimate the expected macrosegregation level.

Abstract: The inner structure of the continuously cast semis has a great importance from the point of view of further processing and application. The main reason for this is the very direct effect of the inner structure’s features (ie. porosity, macrosegregations, geometry of primary dendrites) on the technological characteristic features of the semis during further processing (ie. crack sensitivity, formability, etc.). The paper deals with the possible ways of macrostructure determination on the basis of the results of mathematical modeling of continuous casting process. We pay a special attention to the columnar-equiaxed transition as a function of heat parameters of the casting process and to the macrosegregation formation caused by the motion of solute enriched interdendritic liquid in the mushy zone.
