COMPUTATIONAL TECHNIQUES FOR THE HEAT TRANSFER AND SOLIDIFICATION OF STEEL IN THE CONTINUOUS CASTING MACHINE: Thai university has developed a computational technique for the heat transfer and solidification of steel in continuous casting machine. The formulation of the numerical method is cast into the framework of the Petrov-Galerkin FE method with a step test function across the control volume and locally constant approximation to the fluxes of heat and fluid.

Sector: Information Technology
Area of Application: The numerical technique developed is for studying fluid flow-heat transfer phenomenon in the continuous casting of steel in which the effect of casting speed, thermal conductivity of mould powder, gap size and thermal contact resistance or solidification characteristics has been investigated.
Keywords: computational, technique, heat, trasfer, solidification, steel, casting, machine,
Advantages: It improves the accuracy of results especially for problems with sharp boundary layer such as the solution around the solidification front.
