Abstract:

The work was concerned primarily with determining 1 different methods of obtaining directional solidification in cast steel and 2 effect of solidification variables on structure, segregation, and properties of cast steel. Using a method of obtaining directional solidification with very steep thermal gradients, solidification was unidirectional columnar grains extended from the bottom nearly to the top of 9 in. and 15 in. ingots.
