Abstract

This paper presents actual computational possibilities and experiences from the modelling of qualitative parameters of continuously cast steel billets in ProCAST simulation software achieved during a solving of research projects with industrial partners. The ProCAST simulation programme is a part of the equipment of the “Laboratory of modelling of processes in liquid and solid phases” of the “Regional Materials Science and Technology Centre” at the Faculty of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering at the VŠB – Technical University of Ostrava. In the paper, the list of the required results is reported and based on own practice, the suitable form of their post-processing is recommended. According to the required results for radial continuous casting of steel billets, the most appropriate way of the definition of the numerical model with a finite element mesh and computation procedure are described. Also, the problems with determination of the thermodynamic properties of materials are discussed.

Keywords: steel, continuous casting, numerical modelling, porosity, hot tears
