It is shown that in surfacing rolls of billet continuous casting machines (BCCM) the dimensions of the penetration zone are affected by chemical composition and thermophysical properties of the material of the roll or deposited sublayer. The calculated values of the cross-sectional area, penetration depth and volume of molten metal are presented. They were obtained by numerical modeling on the basis of solving the nonlinear three-dimensional differential equation of thermal conductivity, taking into account the approximated temperature dependence of thermal conductivity coefficient. It was established by calculation and confirmed by experiment that the dimensions of penetration zone increase at submerged-arc surfacing with strip electrode of a sublayer of martensitic-ferritic high-chromium steel and to a higher extent at surfacing of a sublayer of chromium-nickel steel as compared to surfacing of the roll material or of a sublayer of low-carbon low-alloyed steel. 10 Ref., 3 Tables, 3 Figures.
