Finite element thermomechanical simulation of steel continuous casting

Abstract : In continuous casting (CC), thermomechanical simulation is essential to analyze important issues: gap formation; stress and deformation of the solidified shell; bulging of product between supporting rolls in the case of steel CC; size of final product, butt-curl defect in direct chill casting of aluminium. The numerical simulation package THERCAST has been developed with the objective of supplying an accurate analysis of those phenomena, permitting to define relevant process actuators. In this paper, some characteristic features especially developed for steel continuous casting are presented and illustrated by examples of industrial application.
