The following contribution focuses on the secondary cooling zone of a slab caster, analyzing the effects
of nozzle parameters on cooling conditions. The research
group employs experimental measurements, including the
Nozzle Measuring Stand (NMS), to determine local heat
transfer coefficients (HTC) and water distribution. These
measurements are crucial for accurately setting the boundary conditions in the simulation. The implementation of
these boundary conditions is realized by an Exponential
Gaussian Process Regression (EGPR) to predict HTC values. The results highlight the importance of an accurate
HTC assessment in regions with overlapping sprays. The
developed methodology aids in enhancing the precision of
simulations for continuous casting processes, contributing
to a better product quality and process efficiency using the
non-commercial software platform “m2CAST”.
