The liquid steel flow structure in the tundish has a very substantial effect on the quality of the final product and on efficient casting conditions. Numerous model studies are being carried out to explain the effect of the tundish working conditions on casting processes.
It is necessary to analyze the structure of liquid steel flow, which is strongly supported with numerical modeling. In numerical modeling, a choice of a proper turbulence model is crucial as it has a great impact on the flow structure of the fluid in the analyzed test facility. So far most numerical simulations has been done using RANS method (Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations) but in that case one get information about the averaged values of the turbulent flow. In presented study, numerical simulations using large eddy simulations (LES) method were used and compared to RANS results. In both cases, numerical simulations are carried out with the finite-volume commercial code AnsysFluent.
