Summary

This paper presents the results of an investigation on the solidification structures as well as the texture of copper ingots produced by the continuous casting process. The aim of this study was to develop a relatively simple and effective simulation tool for prediction of the grain structure and the texture of copper ingots and to use this tool to find out the most effective strategy for optimising of the solidification structure quality. Here we present the main results of the investigation, and further detailed information can be found in [1].
