This collaborative, multinational project involving Corus UK Ltd Teesside Technology Centre, ThyssenKrupp Stahl AG (TKS-CS), Sidenor 1+D, Centro Sviluppo Materiali (CSM) and Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (MPI) was aimed at the establishment of reproducible conditions for defect-free casting of low carbon, peritectic, and hyper-peritectic and some grades of silicon-alloyed steels. This was to be achieved by the development of an understanding of the early solidification and cooling of the shell and how this is influenced by the chemical and process parameters. The investigation was supported by a programme of modelling the thermal and mechanical aspects of the early solidification in the mould.
