Knowledge of Iron Making
Steels are the most important engineering materials used abundantly in wrought or cast form in variety of applications as material of Construction of components, fabrications, equipment of Power Sectors, Engineering Machine Components, Dairy equipment, Pharmaceutical Equipment, Constructions etc., apparently demanding different sets of Physical / Mechanical / Electrical & Magnetic Properties.However All variety of Steels are produced from iron, scrap and other ferrous materials but different properties are developed by using different Steel Production Technologies ,while adding alloying elements such as Manganese, Nickel, Chromium, and Vanadium etc.. These are purposefully added to produce different grades of steels. Students should understand the different types of steelmaking processes associated Merits & Demerits of Steel Produced in terms of Quality & Productivity, underlying metallurgical Principles of reactions, Practice of Melting-Treating-Refining technologies & Quality Control aspects in Steel making. The student explores the knowledge of the State-of-the art practices of steelmaking such as- Ladle Metallurgy, Secondary Metallurgy & Continuous Casting Process.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
  • Explain different route of steel making Processes.
  • Differentiate between acid and basic steel making as well acid and basic Bessemer process
  • Understand the Importance & Mechanisms of Reactions in Steel Making.
  • Explain Basic Oxygen and electrical process with their merits and limitations
  • Differentiate between Bessemer process, L.D. process, Kaldo process
  • Explain secondary steel making Processes & its significance.
  • Identify the inclusion types & Methods of Preventions.
  • Understands the Merit & Demerits of Ingot Castings & Continuous castings
  • Identify ingot defects and suggest remedies.

  • Active Learning
    Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos,animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
