Multiphysics Simulation of Metal Solidification Processes with Abaqus

Seid Koric, Brian G Thomas, Lance C Hibbeler

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


A coupled thermo-mechanical model of solidifying shell (Koric, 2006, 2011), (Hibbeler, 2009) in Abaqus/Standard is combined with turbulent fluid flow in the liquid pool and thermal distortion of the mold to create an accurate multiphysics model of steel continuous casting. The new model is applied to calculate temperature stress and deformation in a commercial beam blank caster with complex geometry. Results from the complete system compare favorably with plant measurements of shell thickness.
