The quality of the produced steel in the continuous casting process is significantly governed by the melt flow in the mould. But direct flow measurements in liquid metals are still rather scarce. In order to investigate these flow phenomena, three experimental facilities operating with low melting liquid metals at the HZDR were built up. The melt flow in the models is measured by Ultrasonic Doppler Velocimetry or Contactless Inductive Flow Tomography, meanwhile the two-phase flow is visualized by X-ray imaging. The maintained measurement results can be used for validation of numerical models. In this paper we will investigate the effects of the flow in the mould on the surface of the liquid metal using simultaneously flow measurements by UDV and surface profile measurement by a laser scanner. Strong fluctuations and deviations of the free surface were observed in case of a static magnetic field.
