In order to prevent molten steel reoxidation in the tundish during continuous casting, argon injection into the shroud is applied. The injected argon bubbles in molten steel may change the molten steel flow pattern in the tundish. Consequently, the ratios of dead zone, plunger zone and well-mixed zone would change. Also, the motion of inclusions in the molten steel of tundish would change resulting from argon injection. The current word developed a coupling multiphase flow mathematical model. Basing on the developed model, the present work has researched the influences of argon injection on the molten steel flow pattern, inclusion motion characteristics in the tundish.
Key words: continuous casting / tundish / shroud / argon injection / numerical simulation
