Abstract

Mathematical modeling has been developed to study fluid flow patterns inside a round billet mold. The SEN design studied has four angled, lateral ports to deliver swirling flows into the mold cavity. This design reduces mold level fluctuations, and produces more uniform fluid flow patterns in the meniscus region vs a straight bore vertical nozzle. However, when analyzing the mathematical model results, that design indicated that there still remained strong impingement of the four jets onto the forming steel shell on the mold's sidewalls. This could erode the shell, possibly causing breakouts, and could also possibly affect meniscus stability. A more refined SEN design is proposed, which promotes a decrease in the exiting flow momentums passing through the ports, while maintaining the swirling motions within the round cavity mold itself.
