3-D Coupled Fluid-Thermal Finite Element Analysis of 3C-Style Nozzle’s Fluid Field of Al Roll-Casting
Three-dimensional FEM simulations of fluid-thermal analysis of the fluid fields including the front-box and the 3C-style nozzle of aluminum roll-casting was performed by using FLOTRAN module of ANSYS. The advanced result analysis based on post-processing of ANSYS was conducted by MATLAB. According to the allowable inhomogeneity and its application of velocity and temperature at outlet, the most possible broken regions of aluminum sheets at outlet could be predicted in the case of speed increasing of the drawing-sheet and thickness reducing of the aluminium sheet during roll casting.
