Continuous casting, Thermal behavior, Cooling conditions, Simulation


The understanding of steel thermal behavior is very important in order to take care the quality of the products like billets and slabs due to these; this work shows the join of a subroutine to simulate the heat transfer conditions during the continuous casting process to the model for simulating the process described by the present authors in a previous work[1]; the result is the temperature profiles and surface temperature graphics of the steel, then they are compared with data carried out of real operating conditions.
