Experimental Determination of the Cooling Curve for Production of Continuous-Cast Steel Billets



Temperature measurements of 20-cm round, 10-m long, continuous-cast steel billets in the cooling stages of production were made using a contact thermocouple. Temperatures were measured from the time they reached the cross transfer on the cooling bed to a holding area across the street from the facility. A cooling curve derived from temperatures measured on the end of the billet was generated with the equation T = 467.29e−.0001t
