The knowledge of the flow field inside a continuous casting mold is essential to improve operational efficiency of the process and also to achieve better inclusion control. Physical modeling, PIV technique and CFD have been employed to assess the velocity distribution in the metal- slag interface region in a slab mold. The analysis of results obtained show that higher casting velocity and lower immersion depth of submerged nozzle can cause higher turbulence in the slag-metal interface. The effects of density difference between slag and metal and interfacial tension between the phases have been highlighted.
