Paper Title:
DC Casting Using a TF Combo Bag: 3D Modeling of the Distribution of Molten Metal and Heat Transfer
  Abstract

In the past 3 years, Pyrotek in association with Laval University and the Industrial Materials Institute of the National Research Council of Canada has developed a simulation package proposing a unique approach in the fluid flow calculation of molten aluminum distribution with a combo bag in the ingot head of sheet casting. This paper will summarize the difficulties encountered and the solutions that were adopted to render that simulation tool efficient and consistent. Validation of the model using actual casting tests will be detailed as well as the major change in the simulation package in order to obtain decent calculation times. Some examples of simulations will be given to demonstrate that the initial goal of this project has been achieved by the development of a mathematical simulation tool to design and improve metal distributors used in the sheet casting production.
