Modeling of Oxide Precipitates Chemical Composition During Steel Deoxidization
The work analyses the possibilities of modeling the process of steel deoxidization from the view-point of thermodynamic equilibrium between liquid steel and oxide precipitates. Two calculation procedures were employed, which make use of WYK_STAL authors' program and commercial software FactSage. Two kinds of steel were taken into account, one with considerable titanium addition and the second without titanium. The variation of chemical composition of non-metallic precipitates with titanium concentration, aluminum addition and temperature was determined. The apparent influence of assumed thermodynamic model on the composition of non-metallic precipitate was stated.
