Mathematical models have been applied to many different aspects of the continuous slab casting mold. This paper attempts to summarize the results of this modelling work, which includes solidification of the steel shell, fluid flow and heat transfer in the turbulent flowing liquid, interactions near the meniscus and at the shell - mold interface, thermal distortion of the mold, mechanical behavior of the solidifying and plastically deforming steel shell, and prediction of the final microstructure. Combined with physical models, experiments and measurements on operating casters, these mathematical models are powerful tools for gaining insight into the continuous casting process and the problems that can arise.
