"The effect of mischmetal and rare earth oxides on the hot workability of ingot iron in the hot-short region was studied. Thirteen heats were melted in air in a basic-lined induction furnace. All heats were thoroughly deoxidized with aluminum prior to the rare earth additions. Mischmetal was added in amounts of 0.1, 0.3 and 0.5 per cent. Rare earth oxides were added in amounts of 0.1 and 0.2 per cent. Temperatures were maintained at approximately 2900°F and holding intervals between mischmetal additions and pouring at two minutes. Bars were hot rolled and swaged for hot twisting in the hot-short region. Sulfur distribution was studied by sulfur printing and inclusions were studied by metallographic methods"--Abstract, page 8.
