Modeling on Dendrite Growth During Slab Continuous Casting of Stainless Steels
Dendrite growth, an important phenomenon during steel solidification process, is controlled mainly by the interfacial atom deposit dynamics, interfacial tension, heat diffusion, mass diffusion, etc. In the current paper, dendrite tip radius, dendrite growth velocity, and the dendrite tip temperature in the front of S/L interface were calculated for AISI304 type stainless steels, combining with the special solidification mode of stainless steels. The model was validated with experimental data, and parametric investigations were carried out.
