equations govern the physics of fluid flow behaviour.

continuous caster mold were developed between 2009 and 2011 using
supercomputers at the University of Illinois which solved the classical
equations to predict turbulent liquid steel flow in the mold. The model
predictions are used to optimize equipment and process and to produce
defect-free slabs.
