Abstract [en]

A finite-volume model has been developed and applied to analyse the solidification process of pure copper in the mould region of a continuous strip casting machine. The model was produced with the commercial program GFX, which allows this non-linear, turbulent problem to be simulated using a modified version of the k-epsilon turbulence model. The fluid flow, temperature and heat flux distributions in the mould region of the easter were computed. The shape and location of the solidification front were also determined. The effects of operating parameters, such as casting speed, superheat and the assumed values for the latent heal of fusion on the shape and location of the solidification front were investigated.
