Maximum casting speed for continuous cast steel billets based on sub-mold bulging computation

Chunsheng Li, Brian Thomas

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


A finite-element thermal-mechanical model was used to predict temperature, bulging, strain, stress and fracture in billets, in the absence of any sub-mold support. The results were used to find the critical casting speeds to avoid quality problems related to bulging below the mold as a function of section size and mold length.
