The corners of a continuously cast strand are cooled much faster than the remainder, resulting in thermal cycling of these areas into the ductility trough. This leads to cracking because of the stresses occurring during withdrawal and straightening. The objective of this project was to examine means of avoiding overcooling by the use of mould end plates with large corner chamfer and also by different below-mould cooling.
