Numerical Simulation of Billet Continuous Casting Solidification Based on the Measurement of Shell Thickness and Surface Temperature
In order to more accurate simulation the solidification of billet continuous casting. The measured shell thickness and surface temperature have been used to revise the heat transfer model. The calculated results of the model are in excellent agreement with the experimental ones based on an actual casting machine. The revised model can excellent to simulate the billet solidification process. So it provides the possibility for better simulation the dynamic solidification process and optimizing of the secondary cooling water.
