|Title:||Evaluation Of Heat Transfer Coefficients Along The Secondary Cooling Zones In The Continuous Casting Of Steel Billets|
|Abstract:||In the present work, heat transfer coefficients ( h ) along different cooling zones of a continuous caster billet machine were determined during casting of low and medium carbon steels. The effects of casting parameters, such as machine characteristics, the ingot dimension, mold, sprays zones, radiant cooling, melt composition, and casting temperature were investigated and correlated with heat transfer coefficients. By using industrial measured billet surface temperatures, linked with a numerical solution of the solidification problem, ingot/cooling zones heat transfer coefficients were quantified based on the solution of the inverse heat conduction problem (IHCP). The experimental temperatures were compared with simulations furnished by an explicit finite difference numerical model, and an automatic search has selected the best theoretical-experimental fit from a range of values of h . The computer software algorithm has been developed to simulate temperature profiles, solid shell growth, phase transformations, and the point of complete solidification in continuous casting of steel billets and blooms. Industrial experiments were monitored with an optical infrared pyrometer to analyze the evolution of surface temperatures during solidification along the machine. The results permitted the establishment of expressions of h as a function of position along the caster, for different steel compositions, casting parameters and melt superheats.|
