In this study, the influence of the immersion depth, casting speed on the flow characteristics in a beam blank mold with two tubular nozzles have been investigated using a physical model as well as CFD simulations. The results of CFD simulations were found to be consistent with the results of experiments in the physical model. The liquid jet spreads faster the flange region compared to the web region. This can lead to a non-uniform shell thickness along the cross section resulting in uneven solidification of the skin.The jet penetration depth ranged between 66cm and 77cm. The average intensity of meniscus fluctuation was 0.22mm, and the maximum fluctuation was found to be 0.85mm. Based on these results, the suggested optimum operating parameters for immersion depth and casting speed were 75 mm and maximum casting speed of 1m/min.
