Optimization of Six Strand Tundish Based on Flow and Temperature
In this paper the fluid flow and temperature are used together to optimize the 40 tons six strand tundish. Fluid flows in a six strand tundish have been investigated with physical modeling, then steady, three-dimensional temperature fields inside the six strand tundish are obtained. The physical modeling experiments give two optimal integrated tundish structural parameters of baffle holes. From the further study of temperature fields, the tundish should be optimized in the structural parameters of baffle holes in the condition of height 300mm, angel 30° and diameter 20mm.
