Investigation of meniscus region behavior and oscillation mark formation in steel continuous casting using a transient thermo-fluid model
In the continuous casting of steel, many complex phenomena in the meniscus region of the mold are responsible for the formation of oscillation marks. Oscillation marks are depressions found around the perimeter of continuously cast steel slabs, which if too large can lead to cracking in steel slabs. Therefore, knowledge on how to minimize the size of oscillation marks is very valuable. A computational model was created of the meniscus region, which includes transient multiphase fluid flow of slag and steel, with low-Reynolds turbulence, heat transfer in the mold, slag, and steel, steel shell ...
