Abstract
A model of heat and mass transfers in vacuum arc remelting process is used to simulate the remelting of TA6V ingots on an industrial scale. The model enables to calculate the shape and depth of the liquid pool, as well as the oxygen segregation caused by liquid/solid partition. Computed results are presented for different preparations of electrode.
