Abstract

The effect of transverse depressions and oscillation marks on heat transfer in the continuous casting mold is studied. The transient heat conduction within the solidifying steel, coupled with the steady-state heat conduction with the continuous casting mold wall is calculated. Results show that transverse surface depressions and oscillation marks form at the meniscus and move down the mold. It is indicated that the surface depressions and oscillation marks are filled with mold flux, but still have a significant effect on decreasing heat transfer. The predicted mold temperature fluctuations are consistent with the measurements.
