Abstract

Numerical and experimental investigation of heat and mass transfer of a concasting technology F. Kavicka\ J.Stetina',B.Sekanina\B. Ramik',1. Dobrovska^ * Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Brno University of Technology, 61669 Brno, Czech Republic, Email: kavicka@dt.fme.vutbr.cz r VSB - Technical University of Ostrava, 17. listopadu 75, 708 33 Ostrava, Czech Republic Abstract The solidification and cooling of a continuously cast slab (generally a concasting) and simultaneous heating of the crystallizer is a very complicated problem of transient heat and mass transfer. The solving of such a problem is impossible without numerical models and experimental measurements of the temperature field, not only of the concasting itself, while it is being processed through the concasting machine (CCM), but of the crystallizer as well. A three-dimensional (3D) numerical model of the temperature field of a CCM has been used. Simultaneously, together with the numerical computation,
