Numerical And Physical Simulation Of Liquid Steel Behaviour In One Strand Tundish With Subflux Turbulence Controller

Open access

Abstract

This paper presents the results of computer simulations (Ansys-Fluent) and laboratory experiments (physical water model) carried out to describe the motion of steel flow in the tundish. The facility under investigation is a single-nozzle slab tundish. The internal geometry of consider object was changed by flow control device i.e. subflux turbulence controller (STC). In order to obtain a complete hydrodynamic picture in the tundish furniture variants tested, the computer simulations were performed for both isothermal and non-isothermal conditions. From the performed computer simulations and laboratory experiments (physical modeling) it can be found that, the non-isothermal conditions occurring during continuous steel casting will definitely influence the hydrodynamic pattern forming in the tundishes with STC.
