RAILS PRODUCED FROM STRAND CAST STEEL AT THE ALGOMA STEEL CORPORATION LIMITED

Four-strand machine cast blooms used to make rails are investigated. Microstructural studies are presented in depth. Much of the discussion is concerned with abnormalities in strand cast steel compared with rail processed from ingot steel. However, these conditions occur infrequently, and are presented to give a clearer understanding of conditions that can arise. Surface defects arising from steel-making practices are almost entirely eliminated in strand-cast steel.
