Paper Title:
Thermal Flow Simulation on Twin Roll Casting Process for Thin Strip Production of Magnesium Alloy
  Abstract

Strip continuous casting by twin roll method is a rapidly solidifying process, which can directly produce thin strips,reduce energy consumption and product cost of various metal materials. However, the casting of magnesium alloys with large solidifying ranges lead to some problems such as surface and internal defect, variation of solidification finish point for Mg sheet. In this research, the process conditions for a twin roll caster are analyzed by thermal flow simulation. The effect of type and dimension of delivery nozzles on production of Mg alloy are studied. A proper match of the setback distance of thin nozzle and casting speed is studied by thermal flow simulation, based on the characteristics of Mg melt handling, flow dynamics control and solidification.
