Macrosegregation in CC Slabs
In continuously cast semi-finished products, fluid flow results in macrosegregation patterns. There are two reasons for fluid flow during solidification: density differences in the liquid phase and outer forces or constraints, which mix, suck or squeeze the liquid inside. The calculation method described in this paper can be used to analyze the effects of fluid flow caused by outer constraints and to estimate the expected macrosegregation level.
