A thermal model is developed for the ingot solidification during vacuum arc remelting (VAR) and is applied to calculate pool profiles for a VT3-1 alloy. The pool profiles are calculated for two remelting schedules, and the calculation results are compared with radiography data. The model calculation results are shown to agree satisfactorily with experimental data. Using radiography data, the authors calculated a morphological map for a VT3-1 alloy during VAR. The model is used in practice to develop conditions for the final remelting of a VT3-1 alloy to exclude the formation of segregation defects, namely, beta-flecks and macrosegregation.
