In this paper, a three-dimensional finite element model is developed to simulate and analyze the turbulent flow in the mould of billet continuous casting. The result shows that if the SEN is used in the continuous casting process, there exists a symmetrical stronger vortex in the middle of the mould and a weaker vortex above the nozzle. The casting speed, the depth and diameter of SEN all have significant effect on the fluid flow field and the turbulent kinetic energy on the meniscus, and then have effect on the billet quality. At the given conditions, the optimum set of parameters is: the casting speed 0.035 , the depth of the SEN 0.1 , the diameter of the SEN 0.025 . Online verifying of this model has been developed, which can be proved that it is very useful to control the steel quality and improve the productivity.
