A new metal-strip-casting process called continuous strip-casting (CSC) has been developed for making thin metal strips. A numerical simulation model to help understand solid-liquid interface behavior during CSC has been developed and used to identify the solidification morphologies of the strips and to determine the optimum processing conditions. In this study, we used a modified level contour reconstruction method (LCRM) and the sharp interface method to modify interface tracking, and performed a simulation analysis of the CSC process. The effects of process parameters such as heat-transfer coefficient and extrusion velocity on the behavior of the solid-liquid interface were estimated and used to improve the apparatus. A Sn (Tin) plate of dimensions 200 × 50 × 1 mm3 was successfully produced by CSC for a heat-transfer coefficient of 104 W/m2 K and an extrusion velocity of 0.2 m/s.
