Paper Title:
Optimizing of Flow Control Devices in a Single Strand Continuous Casting Tundish
  Abstract

Flow control devices (weir and dam) in a continuous casting tundish are very important to the flow field, which influences the temperature uniform and the inclusion floating. In this work, the weir and dam were firstly optimized through numerical simulation and water simulation synthetically by orthogonal optimization tests. And the optimal parameters showed that the distance from upper weir to inlet was 1000 mm, the distance of upper weir to tundish bottom was 150 mm, the distance from upper weir to dam was 600 mm, and the height of the dam was 320 mm. Then the effect of different arrangement holes on the dam was discussed through RTD curve and velocity field under the optimum flow control device. And it revealed that the hole influenced the flow pattern in that area obviously, a dam with two holes could get a better flow field.
