Most continuous casting plants discharge a product which is somewhat curved initially and corrective action involving reverse bending is required to overcome this defect. This straightening activity itself introduces its own deformations accompanied by the risk of generating internal cracks and this Report covers the development of a mathematical model to explore the various options that are available for dealing with a limited case, i.e. that of slabs with a liquid core. This is important because modern plants operate so quickly that the slabs are still in a somewhat fluid state when they pass through the straightening facility. The Report deals with the design of the model and its limitations followed by detailed consideration of its application to one-point- and progressive unbending systems.
