Abstract: Observations have been made of the liquid pool depth and profile in the continuous casting of steel at the Western Canada Steel Co. and at the Premier Works of the Steel Company of Canada. This was done by two techniques. In the first, radioactive gold was added to the mold during a normal casting, and subsequently determining the distribution of gold in the casting by autoradiography. In the second method, tungsten pellets containing a small Co⁶⁰ wire were dropped into the steel during casting in order to obtain direct measurements of the pool depth. The results of the pool profiles and liquid flow patterns as a function of casting conditions will be presented and compared to theoretical predictions based on heat flow considerations.
