Abstract

A model is proposed for the solidification of thick ingots with supplementary cooling by means of mandrels. On that basis, the overheating of the liquid steel in the classical system may be eliminated. The effectiveness of supplementary cooling by means of mandrels is shown in a computational experiment. The solidification rate may be significantly modified by that means.
