K1-MET Area 3.2 - Physical and numerical simulation of continuous casting and linked castingrolling processes (K1-MET: Competence Center for Excellent Technologies in Advanced Metallurgical and Environmental Process Development)

Project: Research project

Description

The prevention of surface damage is an important aspect during the production process of continuous cast slabs, since the deletion of these defects is associated with high costs. An economical production of high quality products therefore requires
an optimal production process. This will require better knowledge of mechanisms that lead to crack initiation. In this part of the project, various factors influencing the high
temperature ductility behavior will be tested on different steel samples. The findings of these studies are necessary to provide the required information to optimize the process and avoid the formation of surface-near cracks during the continuous casting
process.
