Halliday, Iain M D (1960) Continuous Casting Development for Steel. In: Symposium on Pilot Plant in Metallurgical Research and Development, 15-18/02/1960, Jamshedpur.
Continuous casting processes for steel have all had their origin in some form of pilot Plant development and experience, the importance of gaining "know-how" being a Predominant feature. The first pilot plant to cast metal continuously was built by Henry Bessemer just over one hundred years ago. Whilst machines were developed for non-ferrous metals, progress with liquid steel was more difficult, mainly due to the high handling temperatures and to its low thermal conductivity when solidified.
