Assessment of the Stress–Strain State of the Strand and Caster Near the Foot Rollers in the Secondary-Cooling Zone

  • M. V. AndrosenkoEmail author

The results of the mechanical modeling of the foot roller assemblies in the secondary-cooling zone (SCZ) of a continuous caster are described. The stress–strain behavior of the strand in the SCZ and the stress relief in the slab after a reduction in the distance between the roller rows in the assembly are estimated.
