Research on Thermocouple Embedded Position for CC Mould Copper Plate with High Casting Speed
High casting speed would increase the occurrence probability of sticking, and make it harder for breakout signals catching. The coupled visco-elasto-plastic FEM models have been presented for thermal process analysis of steel shell and the mould copper plates. With the understanding to the mould thermal state and deformation for different casting speed, the principle for the layout of thermocouples is obtained. It is shown that, the set of the thermocouples to the meniscus for the plates should be decided by the highest design casting speed, and the location of the thermocouples from the cold side of the plates is deeper, the breakout signals would be caught easier.
