In the continuous casting (CC) process, transversal cracks happen. This type of macroscopic damage is due to the process loading in the bending and unbending area of the CC line. In order to study this damage, a 2D model was developed. It simulates the intergranular crack at the mesoscopic level. Already validated for a microalloyed steel with C level < 0.1 wt%, this model must be extended to peritectic and stainless steels. The first step is to identify the model parameters for these grades. The type and the quantity of hot tensile tests required to identify a single set of parameters for the damage law must be determined. So, simulations of hot tensile tests of notched samples are needed. The computed stress and strain histories are applied on the representative mesoscopic cell and the moment of rupture is determined in function of the input parameters. Thanks to inverse modelling, the parameters of the damage law are adapted in order to get one single set of parameters with only two different geometries of notch. [less ▲]
