Abstract

In this work, a "sensor-less" method infers metallurgical length by observing when a particular roll first starts turning during smallstep increases in casting speed. This method was applied to the thin-slab caster at Nucor Steel-Decatur LLC, and the trial results were used to calibrate a real-time computational heat transfer model.
