Calculation of Solidification during Continuous Casting and its Experimental Verification


Article Preview

Two computer programs were used for simulation of continuous steel casting processes in frame of this work. In the same time industrial experiments by isotope technics were carried out for observation of solidification and shell thickness. The comparison of calculations and experimental results mutually verified the applicability of methods for more sophisticated control of continuous casting procedure.
