Water model studies have been conducted to characterise the flow conditions in continuous casting tundishes under conditions of open and submerged nozzles. In this investigation simulations of practical problems of flow interruptions from the ladle, thermal inversions due to uninsulated ladle, and pneumatic agitation near the tundish end wall were conducted. The studies showed that incorporation of suitable flow control devices brings about homogenisation of temperature and composition between strands in the above cases. This study also showed that agitation of the liquid at the end wall reduces the extent of stagnant zone in the tundish.
