Main processes in steel production with continuously cast method

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Continuous casting, initially introduced in 1840, is an attractive method in mass producing semi-finished metal shapes (slabs, blooms, and billets) from molten metal. More than 50% of current world’s steel production is produced by continuous casting. Today, annually 750 million tons of steel in the steel-making operation, 20 million tons of aluminium and many tons of other alloys are directly cast from molten metal by continuously casting method. This paper presents a
short review over the processes in consciously cast steel.
