To explore the influence of the slag rim on the heat transfer behavior of a mold, a slag rim was extracted from a stainless steel production factory for high-temperature continuous casting simulation experiments. The 2DIHCP (Two-Dimensional Inverse Heat Conduction Problem) two-dimensional inverse problem calculation model was used to analyze the heat transfer characteristics in the mold, and the temperature and heat flux distribution of the hot surface of the mold copper wall under different working conditions were investigated. The results showed that under a casting speed of 0.5 Â m/min, vibration frequency of 2 Hz, and amplitude of 10 mm, the seepage flow of the mold flux was 9.314 and 6.326 g with and without the slag rim, respectively, the thickness of the slag film was 2.1 and 1.3 mm, respectively, the temperature of the mold hot surface was 118.24 and 134.83 °C, respectively, and the maximum heat flux density of the mold was 0.98 and 1.95 MW/m2, respectively. Through data comparison, when there is a slag rim, the amount of slag infiltration decreased by 32%, the thickness of the slag film decreased by 38%, the temperature of the hot surface of the mold increased by 14%, the heat flux density increased by 99%, and the internal crystal morphology of the slag film was complete. This indicates that the slag rim affects the heat transfer behavior in the mold by restricting the inflow of the mold flux and affecting the formation of the slag film.
