Article Preview

A three-dimensional coupled fluid-thermal finite element simulation model has been developed to provide analyzing distribution of velocity and temperature of nine-spacer nozzle by using FEM simulation of FLOTRAN module in ANSYS 6.0. To explore fluid-thermal analysis of the flow fields of nine-spacer nozzle of aluminum roll-casting, stricter analysis of postprocessing result was conducted by MATLAB. It was concluded that flow field of nine-spacer nozzle was able to match cooling capacity of cast rollers, but nine-spacer nozzle’s geometric flaw didn’t suit for working in the case of speed increasing of the drawing-sheet and thickness reducing of the aluminium sheet during roll casting.
