The formation of cracks has been studied during continuous casting of a tool steel. Experimental work was performed in a continuous slab caster and the position of the cracks was determined as a function of distance from the cooling surface. Numerically calculated temperatures and elastic stresses were combined with experimentally determined thermomechanical data of the cast material in order to predict crack positions. The model was extended to include the effect on the strain from both thermal shrinkage and the shrinkage caused by condensation of vacancies during the solidification process.
