The process of producing steel products contains three main stages: continuous casting, reheating of a slab, and processing. A complex control system is required to adjust the parameters of the casting machine and the furnace to maximize the quality of the final product and the throughout capacity of a workshop.
The speaker will talk about the work done on thermo-mechanical modeling of solidification of liquid steel during continuous casting and thermal modeling of cooling of a slab in a warehouse and reheating of a slab before processing. The speaker will present techniques to forecast the emergence of cracks in casted ingots and methods to avoid them.
