Abstract:

The mechanical properties of three ingots of a low-alloy steel produced in an experimental ESR furnace are assessed in the as-cast, heat-treated condition. In general, the tensile, notch impact toughness, fracture toughness and fatigue properties of these ingots compare favourably with those determined for a wrought, vacuum-degassed electric furnace steel of similar composition. Variations in mechanical properties within, as well as between, ingots are correlated with differences in chemical composition, inclusion content, inclusion morphology and solidification geometry brought about by changes in the remelting conditions.
