Transient ladle reactions in IF steel melts are simulated experimentally. It is found that when Al2O3 is thermodynamically stable, Ti has the effect of modifying the inclusions as a result of local super-saturation. When Al2TiO5 is stable, the inclusion morphology appeared to change into smooth, non-facetted shapes. When Ti oxide is stable, the possibility of generating secondary inclusions during solidification was investigated.
