Abstract

Heat transfer problem in the ingot during continuous casting is discussed. Steady state temperature field in a coordinate system attached to the mould has been considered. Phase change is assumed to take place at constant temperature. The nonlinearity in this problem is caused by the unknown location of the solid liquid interface. To determine both this location and the temperature field in the ingot an original BEM technique has been developed. Numerical example is included. 1. Introduction The continuous casting process of metals and alloys is nowadays frequently utilized in metal industry. The scheme of this process is sho
