Heat-flow and thermal-stress models of continuous steel slab casting are calibrated with detailed measurements of a breakout and applied to predict longitudinal off-corner crack formation. First, a fluid mass balance is applied together with the measured slide-gate position, mold level, casting speed histories to reconstruct the transient events that(More)
Computational models of continuous casting can reveal a great deal about the process, as long as they are able to match the real caster. A simple one-dimensional model of heat conduction in the mold is accurate except near the thermocouples, bolt holes, and cooling-water channel roots where the details of the three-dimensional geometry affects the mold heat(More)
