Abstract

The thermomechanical behavior of a wide slab casting mold is studied using a three dimensional, finite-element model of the mold plates, waterboxes, stiffeners, and tie rods. The thermal model reveals the hot face temperature variations due to the water channel geometry around the bolts and at mold exit. The distortion of the narrow face is reduced greatly by a stiffener plate. The distortions of about 1 mm are on the order of the applied tapers and must be considered when designing taper practice.
