The deposition of deoxidation and reoxidation products in continuous casting tundish nozzles results in poor surface quality of the cast product and in extreme cases, disruption of the operating schedule. Since the flow of steel in the tundish is central to the behavior of nonmetallic inclusions in the tundish, the details of the flow field are determined numerically by appropriate solutions of the equations of change. The effects of the changes of the internal configuration of the tundish and various casting parameters on the computed velocity fields, particle trajectories, and particle residence times are investigated. The conclusions drawn from the computed results are compared with the results of various independent water model studies.
