Various interfacial phenomena in steelmaking processes affect the quality of steels, and the following subjects related to the interfacial phenomena are still investigated extensively nowadays:. (1)Interfacial convection in welding processes(2)Engulfing small droplets of molten slag into liquid steel(3)Erosion or dissolution loss of refractories(4)Separation of metallic droplets from slag(5)Engulfing nonmetallic inclusions into solidified interface(6)Generation of gas bubbles in liquid steel(7)Nucleation during solidification(8)Slag foamingIn this chapter, some examples of the investigation on the above subjects are explained by referring to the relationship with interfacial properties.
