  • Effect of the rolling reduction ratio on the quality and properties of rolled engineering steel bars deriving from cast billete and blooms produced via the continuous casting route


The continuous casting process involves ever higher volumes of carbon and low alloy steels, supplied as rolled bars for use in the motor vehicle and mechanical sectors. More stringent specifications and the need for greater reliability of components make it necessary to produce semifinished products of higher quality. The quality level is closely related to the original quality of the billets and blooms and the procedures used in the rolling process. The present research work intends to fix the relationship between the abovementioned factors, in particular aiming to identify the lowest rolling reduction ratio needed to achieve the material properties.
