Simulation on the Slag Pool Flow Field in the Electroslag Casting Process
The flow of the molten slag pool determines the temperature distribution and the pool profiles in the electroslag casting process, which impact on the quality of ingot casting. The flow field of the molten slag pool in the electroslag casting process was simulated by the large-scale finite element analysis software ANSYS, the result of which was completely in accordance with the physical simulation results. It was discussed that the influence of the molten slag flow field was caused by the current, the filling scale and the angle of electrode taper, which provided the scientific basis for the produce of the electroslag casting.
