In order to reduce segregation in 12%Cr steel ingots of 60-100tons, numerical analysis by computer was applied to simulate solidification profiles and the profiles of liguid-solid coexisting zone in accordance with the ratios of H(Height) /D(diameter) of 100-ton ingot. The result is that the ratio of L(vertical length) /D(diameter) of liquid-solid coexisting zone was reduced in proportion to the decrease of H/D ratio. With the reduced H/D ratio(0.92) of ingot, the segregation in 60-ton ingot of 12% Cr steel can be much reduced and recovery was also improved by reducing ingot weight.
