Gupta, D and Subramaniam, S and Lahiri, AK (1991) Study Of Fluid-Flow And Residence-Time Distribution In A Continuous Slab Casting Mold. In: Steel Research, 62 (11). pp. 496-500.Full text not available from this repository.
The fluid-flow pattern and residence-time distribution (r.t.d.) of the fluid in a continuous casting mould have been studied using a water model. The two recirculating zones below the discharge ports have been found to be asymmetric. The effect of casting speed, discharge port diameter, shroud well depth and the immersion depth on r.t.d. have been investigated. The r.t.d. curve has been well represented by a model of two backmix cells of equal volume in series. The exist of the fluid has been found to be non-uniform across the cross-section of the mould. The fluid-flow pattern has been observed to change with time in a random fashion. Dead volume of upto 31.8% has been found with smaller discharge ports.
