  • continuous casting;
  • primary cooling in sheet ingot casting


In this paper a selection of these mould temperature measurements are presented, and various phenomena connected to the primary cooling are discussed. In addition, by comparing measurements with results from numerical models, the potential of modelling tools to reproduce the complex phenomena related to the primary cooling is illustrated. Numerical models may provide important information complementing the experimental data, and they provide insight into which parameters and properties that might influence the different mechanisms.
