ContiSimTM is a systematically modular software built on more than 16 years of experience in the field of modelling of continuous casting processes [1]. It is focused on the coupled computation of solidification, cooling, phase change, contraction and stress evolution during the continuous casting of metals, the material bandwidth is from nonferrous metals like copper alloys to steel and cast iron. It allows to describe and to check existent or planned configurations virtually, to optimize operating conditions by parameter investigation, to determine crucial process states to develop measures for safe production, and to predict (and to control) interim and final product qualities. The special quality of computer simulation is to visualize even not measurable inner states and product qualities as well as to make understandable temporal sequences.
