As of yet, continuous steel casting practices have been little investigated, and as a rule they concern a limited group of steel grades. Very often quality problems occur when casting new steel grades. The reasons for failures related to the casting of special steel grades include the occurrence of temperature ranges with a reduced ductility. If the surface or edge temperature is within the steel reduced ductility range during the cast strand straightening operation, the likelihood of crack initiating increases.
