Spring'17 release of ME-databases

Microsegregation in microalloyed steel is studied in the Scheil-Gulliver module of MatCalc. It is used to predict primary precipitates during the continuous casting process. Primary precipitates in microalloyed steel, which are marked by circles, are visible in Figure 1.

In the calculation, back diffusion of carbon and nitrogen as well as the peritectic reaction is considered. The results can be seen in Figure 2. Primary (Ti,Nb),(C,N) precipitates with a phase fraction of 0.1% are predicted.
