Abstract: A three dimensional evolutionary continuous casting problem is considered. The problem is described by a singular parabolic equation with a singular convection term and mixed boundary conditions. The problem of optimal control for the boundary flux is discussed. Necessary conditions for the optimal control problem are derived in the absence of mushy region.
Keywords: Continuous Casting problem; optimal control; boundary flux.
