Real-time Model-based Spray-cooling Control System for Steel Continuous Casting


This paper presents a new system to control secondary cooling water sprays in continuous casting of thin steel slabs, CONONLINE. It uses real-time numerical simulation of heat transfer and solidification within the strand as a software sensor, in place of unreliable temperature measurements. The one-dimensional finite-difference model, CON1D is adapted to… (More)
