Large-Eddy Simulations of a Flow Characteristics in a Multi-Strand Continuous Casting Tundish / Badania Numeryczne Charakterystyk Przepływu W Wielo-Wylewowej Kadzi Posredniej Metodą Wielkich Wirów (Les)

Open access

In order to increase the efficiency and quality of the steel-making process a numerous studies are conducted at the various stages of the process, including continuous casting of steel. Researchers still search for new models and improve existing one, so that the specific of the process is accuratelly reproduced. One way to increase the accuracy of numerical simulation, is to apply the LES (Large Eddy Simulation) method to simulate steelmaking processes.

The article presents the results of numerical analysis on the flow characteristics (RTD curves) of liquid steel in the tundish facility for the continuous casting of steel. Numerical simulations have been performed using RANS (Reynoldsaveraged Navier-Stoke) and LES methods, and those results have been verified in industrial conditions.
