Analysis of structural microinhomogeneity in low carbon steels based on a computer modeling of its solidification

Mathematical Methods. Modeling. Experimental studies

A computer model of progressive casting solidification at non-equilibrium crystallization of multicomponent alloys is developed taking into account the formation of dendritic structure and redistribution of components between phases. The results of modeling of structural microinhomogeneity which arises during the formation of dendritic structure in the cross section of low-carbon steel castings under changing the content of alloying elements and heat-removal conditions are presented.
