ANSYS and Tata Steel - Case Study

During the continuous casting of steel, casting of different grades in the same sequence produces transition billets. The product mix of transition billets does not conform to any of the grades, and needs to be downgraded or diverted. Engineers at Tata Steel in India used ANSYS Fluent to model the flow of molten steel in the tundish, which resulted in reduced transition billet tonnage and increased product quality.
