|Subject is read with the purpose of understanding of basic theoretical and practical knowledge of methods of secondary metallurgy during treatment of liquid steel. Students will be also introduced to basic findings from the field of steel casting, namely during classic method into ingots and especially during progressive method by the help of continuous casting. |
|Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit|
-student will be able to characterize the basic technologies of the secondary metallurgy and their theoretical essence
-student will be able to describe the principle and course of steel solidification together with presentation of particulate technologies of steel casting
-student will be able to use his knowledge for description of basis of theory and practice of secondary steel treatment and steel casting
-student will be able to develop his theoretical and practical findings during his further studies

2.Elements of steel, behaviour of elements during steel refining.
3.Refining of steel by the help of inert gases, effects, technologies, flotation of non-metallic inclusions by the inert gas, absorption of inclusions by the slag.
4.Gases in the steel, degassing of steel, basis, mechanism, vacuum steel refining, technological methods.
5.Steel refining by the help of synthetic slags, composition of slags, kinetics of processes.
6.Ladle furnaces, importance during steel treatment at the secondary metallurgy, dividing. Inputting of cored and Al wires into the liquid steel, importance, technology, modification of inclusions.
7.Steel casting, equipment of cast houses, characteristics of basic technologies.
8.Steel casting into ingot-moulds, top-pouring, uphill casting, steel crystallisation, structure of ingots, micro- and macro-segregation.
