Abstract:The significance of oxide inclusions in steels far exceeds their relative volumes. In particular, their effects on the mechanical behaviour of steels have become critical for the high performance requirements of present technology. Thus, metallurgists no longer attempt to ignore these phases because they are non- metallic species, as they did a generation or so ago. Rather, they take an aggressive attitude toward a better understanding of the origin, nature, and behaviour of oxide inclusions. The results have been so extensive that it is now difficult for anyone individual to be familiar with all aspects of the related science and technology. For this review, five individuals were called upon to cover five separate aspects of the subj ect. Included are the chemistry of oxygen in liquid steel, the mechanics of inclusion formation during solidification, the internal oxidation of solid steel, the effects of oxides on primary processing, and the effects of oxides on failure by fatigue. Since all aspects are related, their combined review and presentation is both timely and needed.
