From March 11th to 15th, at theTMS (The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society) 2018 147th Annual Meeting held in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, the two papers published by Professor Wang Wanlin and Dr. Zhang Haihui from the School of Metallurgy and Environment of Central South University on Metallurgical and Materials Transactions B (Metall. Mater. Trans. B, 2015, 46(5): 2361-2373.andMetall. Mater. Trans. B, 2016, 47 (2): 920-931.), an international authoritative metallurgical journal, stood out among many participating papers and won the TMS-AIME Champion H. Mathewson Award after the rigorous appraisal and assessment by a jury composed of internationally renowned metallurgical experts and scholars.
The TMS-AIME Champion H. Mathewson Award was named by TMS ((The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society) and AIME (American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical & Petroleum Engineer) after Champion H. Mathewson, the former Chairman of AIME. It was established to jointly award and honor the scholars who have published outstanding achievements in the field of metallurgical engineering and materials science. Prof. Wang Wanlin and Dr. Zhang Haihui, relying on the Mold Simulator technology created by the School of Metallurgy and Environment of Central South University, observed in situ the initial high temperature, multi-phase and transient solidification phenomenon in the continuous casting mold, and adopted spectral analysis to reveal the effect mechanism of crystallizer vibration, molten steel surface fluctuation on the behavior of mold flux infiltration and lubrication, crystallizer heat transfer, molten steel solidification, and the formation of defects on the surface of the shell. It can provide a theoretical basis for the development of advanced steel continuous casting new technology.
