Published experimental data about steel forging ingot chemical inhomogeneity with different steel weight and composition are summarized. An equation is obtained for calculating the carbon liquation factor over an ingot cross section in relation to weight and configuration (H/D ratio), and also on original carbon and sulfur content in cast steel.
