In this diploma thesis we have simulated the flow of steel melt in five different tundishes.
In last years we are increasingly devoting ourselves on tundish technology and its effect on steel making, as it its one of the most important metallurgical aggregate. With its proper design we greatly contribute to the higher purity of steel melt and thus better quality of the manufactured steel product.
Theoretical part includes review of the development of continuous casting, process flow, advantages, followed by detailed description of tundish.
In pratical part we numerically simulated flow of steel melt in various tundishes. The first three were barrier-free and differed in geometry, while the last two had a barrier at different distances. Results were presented with images showing velocity zones and streams. For even more detailed insight, we have cut tundish longitudinally and transversely in order to make various velocity vs tundish height, length diagrams.
