New developments of experiments, modelling and simulations on following special topics have attracted interest in this conference:

  • Thermodynamics: Formation and composition-control of inclusions in liquid steels and precipitates in solid steels and their thermodynamics.
  • Growth kinetics: Nucleation, Ostwald ripening and collision growth of inclusion particle in liquid steels.
  • Inclusion behavior: Inclusion elimination, nozzle clogging and flux entrapment during steel making, ladle and casting processes.
  • Inclusion/precipitate behavior: Microstructure control and toughness and hardness control by inclusions and precipitates from casting to hot working processes.
  • Assessment techniques of inclusions

  • Slags and fluxes physical properties
