UK Abstract This paper deals with surface morphology, the mechanism of the origination and causes of cross cracking of concast low alloy manganese steel slabs. The cross cracking was identified in a steel slab with sectional size 145x1300 mm and the length of the asymmetrical cracking was approximately 600 mm. Light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy have been applied for the determination of the metallographic structure of steel and for the study of micromorphology and the trajectory of crackin
