FE-Modelling of Continuous Casting Problem
A mathematical model for simulating the heat transfer during solidification in continuous casting of steel is presented. The heat transfer coefficients along and across the strand are optimized. The evolution and location of thermal stresses are computed. Numerical examples are included.
