Thermomechanical modelling of continuous casting
by Bohus Ulrych |4 October 2012
Two application examples are showing new possibilities to take into account stress and deformation by the simulation of continuous casting processes. The variability of the presented examples prove that the proposed method is not limited to a certain class of applications, dimension and alloy composition. Since the gap formation can now be taken into account, the results are expected to be much more precise. This approach opens a wide field of application in order to better understand and control the heat transport in continuous casting processes.
