Ingot Solidification Simulation
A-Segregation Analysis

- service offered by Industrial Soft -

Through A-segregation analysis service you can check if the ingot size, shape and the chemical composition of your steel allows you to have a forging product free of A-segregations and homogeneous mechanical properties.


A-segregations analysis module, based on the mechanism proposed by K.Suzuki and T.Miyamoto from Japan Steel Works Ltd. and developed by Industrial Soft is employed with solidification software SimCADE v.2.0 in this numerical analysis.


The pdf file report about your ingot will contain:

  • influence of casting technology variables on A-segregation area size;
  • numerical analysis of mold design, ingot size and shape;
  • influence of steel composition on A-segregation area.

  • The report of numerical experiments will help you to:

  • optimize ingot size and shape (H/D ratio, ingot taper) in accordance with steel grade;
  • minimize fabrication cost by reducing the ferroalloys consumption;
  • establish a target chemical composition of the ingot;
  • optimize mold temperature, hot top size and pouring temperature.

  • The conclusion section comes with practical recomandations that will help you to take better decisions, save time and energy, reduce materials consumption, avoid the A-segregations detected by ultrasonic test and increase homogeneity of mechanical properties.


    If you are a forging parts buyer and have the manufacturing records of the ingot, this service will give you tools to negociate the price of the part you want to acquire. More, this service will tell you if the semi-manufactured or forging product you want to buy has homogeneous mechanical properties and is free of A-segregations or not.
