Continuous Casting Consortium (CCC)

The Continuous Casting Consortium (CCC), directed by Brian G. Thomas, is a cooperative research effort aiming:

  • To develop comprehensive mathematical models of the continuous casting of steel slabs
  • To apply these models to improve fundamental understanding, optimize the process, and solve practical problems of interest to the participating member companies in the steel industry

The CCC efforts are assisted by funding and plant data from the member companies, grants from the National Science Foundation, and computing resources from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.
