Continuous Casting, Volume 10: Tundish Operations Continuous Casting, Volume 10: Tundish Operations

The tundish represents the inextricable link between batch steelmaking and the continuous casting process. In its initial stages of development, the tundish was regarded as nothing more than a reservoir to hold sufficient liquid steel to provide a constant head over the mold, and to permit a ladle exchange to occur without interruption of sequence casting. Continuous Casting, Volume 10 provides a road map to tundish technologies for steelmakers of varying levels of expertise.

Catalogue of Ingot Defects Catalogue of Ingot Defects

For ingot processing by rolling and forging, it is essential that the ingot surface is free from defects and that the interior ingot structure complies with the requirements of the intended use. This applies to conventional casting methods as well as special melting methods. The bilingual German-English catalog is subdivided into ingot surface defects, ingot head defects, interior ingot defects and defects occurring during ESR.

Arc Furnace Physics Arc Furnace Physics

Ben Bowman and Klaus Kruger
While it may seem strange to find a book devoted to the physics of an industrial process, the scope for applying physics to arc furnaces is wide. Most of the engineers and managers who are responsible for arc furnaces do not have the opportunity or time to study all the widely dispersed, previously published information on arc furnaces. The authors’ intention is that Arc Furnace Physics will supply useful information needed in the continual quest to extract improved performance from the arc furnace.
