Liquid metal temperature in the casting table needs to be controlled to avoid defects and assure process stability during DC-casting. Simple analytical models can provide us with an insight into the temperature loss as liquid metal moves from the furnace through the casting line and could be used to regulate the temperature of the liquid metal entering the casting table. Part of the heat losses comes from conjugate heat transfer between refractory launders and liquid metal. Hence, prediction of the transient temperature field in the refractory during casting becomes a critical element in being able to predict the temperature loss in the liquid. In this study, we use a simple analytical model to estimate the temperature field in the refractory due to its contact with the liquid metal. The analytical results are compared with both experimental data from casting trials and simulation models (1D and 2D).
