The Design of Continuous Casting Plants for India

Dastur, M N and Lalkaka, R D (1959) The Design of Continuous Casting Plants for India. In: Symposium on Iron & Steel Industry in India Organised by the NML, Aug.'1959, NML, Jamshedpur.



WORLD steel producing capacity is being enlarged at an average rate of about 15 million ingot tons per year, requiring very substantial capital investments. The difficulties of financing such large investments, and their effects on production costs through heavy amort-ization charges, have led to extensive development work on now processes for iron and steel manufacture. The prospect of eliminating conventional stripper yards,soa-king pits and blooming mills (which together may amount to about 10% of the cost of an integrated iron and steel plant) has created considerable engineering interest in the continuous casting of steel.
