This paper presents the findings of research conducted concerning the determination of thermal boundary conditions for the steel continuous casting process within the primary cooling zone. A cast slab - with dimensions of 1100 mm×220 mm - was analysed, and models described in references were compared with the authors' model. The presented models were verified on the basis of an industrial database. The research problem was solved with the finite element method using the ProCAST software package.
