An optimal control problem of the cooling in the continuous casting steel is considered. The quality of a steel ingot essentially depends from the temperature gradients in the hardening process. Minimizing the temperature gradients is the purpose of the control. The objective functional is introduced in a hard phase of the cylindrical ingot. The control being at the bound of the ingot. There is a restriction for temperature at the end of the ingot. It was realized by a fine functional. The objective functional was minimized directly by the extreme method with regulating direction of descent.
