Description of a New Tundish Model for Treating RTD Data and Discussion of the Communication “New Insight into Combined Model and Revised Model for RTD Curves in a Multi-strand Tundish” by Lei

A new tundish model was proposed for analyzing data of the residence time distributions. It was based on an approximated analytical solution for the model of Sahai and Ahuja, which is described elsewhere. Subsequently, it was applied along with some analytical results for well-mixed tanks in a comprehensive discussion of Lei’s work. This discussion contributed to a better understanding of the RTD theory applied to the analysis of fluid flow in continuous casting tundishes.
