Visco-Plastic Multi-Physics Modeling of Steel Solidification

Seid Koric, Brian G Thomas

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Thermo-mechanical steel solidification models, based on highly nonlinear elastic visco-plastic constitutive laws in solid and featuring efficient and robust local implicit integration scheme, are coupled with cfd turbulent calculations in the liquid pool via enhanced latent heat method. The new multi-physics model of metal solidification is applied to calculate temperature, stress, and deformation of solidifying shell in a commercial caster with real geometry.
