Summary

Single-roll strip casting is used to produce sheet that can be applied for the automotive industry. The main work concentrates on the relation between as-cast microstructure, formability behaviour and process variables. One of the most important process parameters which influence the desirable strip properties is the heat transfer coefficient h. To determine the heat transfer coefficient, experiments were carried out during casting of 1 mm thin aluminium strip on a single-roll strip caster. The value of h is obtained by inverse modelling techniques from in-situ temperature measurements inside the wheel. The value of h thus obtained is decreasing with time from 1 to 0.5 kW/m2 K and this is attributed to the development of an air gap after solidification.
