Numerical Study of Liquid Core Solidification in Influence of Soft Reduction Deformation on Steel Slab Continuous Casting Process
A two dimensions (2D) multiphase solidification model is used to study the liquid core solidification in the influence of deformation during soft reduction of continuous casting (CC). The transient transport equations (mass, momentum and enthalpy) for each phase of a thin steel slab CC are solved. Four different cases including of density-temperature function and deformation reduction factor on this CC are simulated. The solidification ending point position of liquid core, temperature, velocity and fracture of liquid and solid phases are compared. Understandings to the deformation and liquid core formation mechanism on soft reduction solidification process of CC are improved.
