Solidification Simulation of Huge Rectangular Ingot by Different Intensive Cooling
In this paper, the solidification and heat transfer of a 60t huge rectangular ingot has been simulated. The solidification rate at pouring finish and the solidification times were simulated for air cooling, soft wind cooling, strong wind cooling, fog cooling, weak water cooling and strong water cooling. Mathematical simulation results tell us that by intensive cooling, the solidification time of the can be obviously shortened, internal soundness can be ensured and the surface quality could be improved.
