Evaluating different oxidizing atmospheres (H2O-steam, dry air, H2- and/or CH4 combustion atmosphere) for different product groups

Surface oxidation plays a central role for the continuous casting and hot rolling processes. Objective is to investigate the influence of different oxidizing atmospheres (water steam, dry air, hydrogen combustion atmosphere, natural gas combustion atmosphere) on the scale formation and surface quality of AHSS grades with alloying additions (namely Si, Al > [...]
