Since the casting quality could be influenced by many factors during the continuous casting process of metal wire, it is helpful to numerically analyze the effects of different operation conditions. In this study, a steady mathematical model is built to simulate the heat-transfer behavior of the metal wire bars during the casting process. The numerical method is the finite difference method. With different casting speeds and cooling conditions, the computer programs are used to analyze the continuous casting of copper, silver and gold wires, whose diameter is 8 mm. The computing results are compared with the experimental ones from the Metal Industries Research and Development Center in Taiwan.
