WHO WILL BENEFIT

The Brimacombe Continuous Casting Course is designed for people who are concerned with controlling and improving the quality and production rate of continuously cast steel shapes.  Persons who will benefit include shop floor operating personnel, quality control and research personnel, management personnel and individuals in support industries associated with continuous casting.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Topics to be covered include chemical interactions, steel cleanliness, transfer operations, fluid flow, tundish metallurgy, mould design/behaviour, spray systems, heat extraction, solidification, segregation, electromagnetic stirring, crack formation and new technology such as strip/thin slab casting.  The course offers a practical understanding of the continuous-casting process and quality based on fundamental principles, and deals with problems commonly experienced in production.  Much of what will be presented and discussed is based on our research, some of it unpublished, which spans a twenty-five year time period.
