Molten Steel Flow, Heat Transfer and Inclusion Distribution in a Single-Strand Continuous Casting Tundish with Induction Heating
The electrical magnetic field plays an important role in controlling the molten steel flow, heat transfer and migration of inclusions. However, industrial tests for inclusion distribution in a
The warm deformation behavior of 65Mn spring steel has been carried out by a thermomechanical simulator. The deformation temperatures are in the range of 550 ~ 700℃ and strain rates are in the range


Physical and mathematical models of steel flow and heat transfer in a tundish heated by plasma
Temperature control of liquid steel by plasma heating is physically and mathematically modeled. A dimensionless plasma heating number is employed for scaling up of heating operations between a steam
Physical Modelling of Tundish Plasma Heating and Its Mathematical Interpretation
Steel flow and heat transfer in tundishes heated by plasma is physically modeled using a water model with tracer injections and the experimental results are interpreted through a turbulent k-e
Simulation of Flow and Heat Fields in a Seven-strand Tundish with Gas Curtain for Molten Steel Continuous-Casting
The present study involves physical and mathematical simulations to study the effect of gas bubbling curtains on the flow and temperature fields in a seven-strand tundish. In 1/3 scale tundish model
Two-Strand Tundish with Chambers for Plasma Heating of Liquid Metal
An improved design of tundish which has chambers for the plasma heating of liquid steel has been developed and tested. The design of the tundish improves heat and mass transfer processes inside it.
On the basis of coupled flow and heat transfer calculation, the plasma heating simulating results of argon-blowing on the bottom of heating area and non-argon-blowing in the six-strand tundish were
Physical and Numerical Simulation of the Fluid Flow and Temperature Distribution in Bloom Continuous Casting Mold
For the purpose of improving the quality of low‐alloy steel production, the influence of the submerged entry nozzle (SEN) on fluid flow and temperature field in a bloom mold sized 250 × 350 mm is
Physical modelling of fluids’ interaction during liquid steel alloying by pulse-step method in the continuous casting slab tundish
ABSTRACT The continuous steel casting process is characterised by physico-chemical phenomena that are considered in the macro- and microscale. This paper attempts to assess the impact of local
Multiphase Flow Behavior in a Single-Strand Continuous Casting Tundish during Ladle Change
The three-phase flow behavior in a single-strand continuous casting tundish during ladle change was investigated using physical modeling. These phenomena observed from physical modeling were
Physical Simulations of Macromixing Conditions in One‐Strand Tundish during Unsteady Period of Continuous Slab Casting Sequence
The tundish as a flow reactor has a special feature, that is, the liquid metal stays in its working capacity for a certain period of time before it enters the mold. This time is effectively used to
Optimization of Two‐Strand Industrial Tundish Work with Use of Turbulence Inhibitors: Physical and Numerical Modeling
The paper shows the results of the research obtained by physical and mathematical modeling of steel flow and mixing in the tundish. Two‐strand continuous casting tundish was under consideration. It
