Abstract

By water model experiments and numerical simulation of a swirling flow tundish for continuous casting of steels, the influences of swirling chamber dimensions and liquid flowrate on the flowing behavior in the chamber and the whole tundish were examined. The variations of flow pattern, tracer concentration and rotational velocity vector in the chamber were determined, and the motion of an inclusion particle was analyzed. The numerical simulation results agree well with the physical modeling results. The rotational speed aroused by introducing the swirling chamber is comparable with that of centrifugal tundish by electromagnetism. This affords a foundation for optimization design of a swirling flow tundish.
