Objective

The project will study the improvement of steel surface and internal quality by the development of measuring and predictive tools in the tundish nozzle and casting mould. Correlation and application of the developed tools with plant data to generate guidelines for quality improvement will be carried out.

This will be achieved by further development of technologies to measure and visualise steel flow patterns in the casting nozzle (started under contract 7215.PP/045) combined with measurements of flow velocities and thermal conditions in the mould (following on from 7210.PP142) and correlation with plant data and process measurements.
