Abstract [en]

The motion and shape of a vertically falling flat rectangular jet of liquid metal issuing from an inclined plane is analysed numerically and analytically. The jet is affected by surface tension and gravity. The main interest in this problem originates from the technological application of the direct strip casting process, which is a novel process to cast steel strips in a thickness range from 2 to 15 mm with a minimum or no hot-rolling. In this process the liquid metal is fed onto a single endless horizontal belt that runs between two rollers. The bottom of the belt is cooled by water. One of the techniques to feed the liquid metal is down an inclined plane Due to disturbances in the flow, for instance slag in the liquid metal, the jet issuing from the inclined plane may split into two or several jets. The large convergence of the individual jets causes an unfavourable non uniform distribution of the liquid metal over the belt. In the analysis of the present paper it is shown, using an expansion in the inverse Froude number, that the convergence of a single jet depends to zero order on the inverse square root of the Weber number We'[l/2]= (y/(p[wo][2] lt))[1/2]. Small convergence of the jet is found for large Weber numbers, which can be accomplished with a large initial velocity w[o].
