Nozzle design for ArcelorMittal Dofasco's No. 1 continuous caster for minimizing sliver defects



Nozzle design for ArcelorMittal Dofasco's No. 1 continuous caster for minimizing sliver defects
Sengupta, Joydeep; Yavuz, Mehmet Metin (2011-07-01)
A study was conducted at ArcelorMlttal Dofasco to evaluate fluid flow patterns generated in the No. 1 continuous caster mold by using computational fluid flow and heat transfer models. Single-phase (liquid steel without argon co-flow), three-dimensional, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and heat transfer models were developed using ANSYS CFXTM for a 220-mm-thick mold and a two-port SEN with a nozzle well used at the No. 1 CC to produce ULC steel slabs at various caster throughput rates. Based on these mod...

Nozzle blockage in continuous casting of al-killed SAE 1006 and SAE 1008 grades in Iskenderun Iron and Steel Works
Sakallı, Erhan; Sevinç, Naci; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2004)
In this work, nozzle clogging in the submerged entry nozzle in continuous casting of Al killed steels has been studied. The study has been based on low silicon Al killed SAE 1006 (1.2006) and SAE 1008 (1.2008) grades. In this study, castabilities of 75 heats for 1.2006 steel grades and 75 heats for 1.2008 steel grades have been investigated. Castabilities of the experimental heats have been found to be affected by Al content in oxide form (Aloxy) and Ca content of the liquid steel. Castabilities have been f...
Circumferentially cracked bimaterial hollow cylinder under mechanical and transient thermal loading
Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat (Informa UK Limited, 2006-12-01)
The analytical solution for the problem of a circumferential inner surface crack in an elastic, infinitely long composite hollow cylinder, made of two concentric perfectly bonded transversely isotropic cylinders is considered. Uniform axial loading and thermal loading in the form of a sudden cooling on the inner boundary are considered. Out of 10 material parameters involved, two bimaterial parameters and three material parameters for each layer upon which the stress intensity factor depends under uniform l...
Strut and Tie Topology for Reinforced Concrete Elements
Işıklı, Yunus; Binici, Barış; Tuncay, Kağan (2021-09-08)
Strut and Tie Model (STM) is a lower-bound design method for reinforced concrete members. It is usuallypreferred for non-standard structural elements for which internal forces are not well-defined. In recent years,studies and applications on STM have increased considerably. Topology optimization methods are generallyused to find struts and ties. Once locations and orientations of reinforcements are available, the design procedureis rather easy to apply, even for complex geometries. However, finding the STM ...
