Abstract

The coating of steel by dipping through a molten alloy and then stripping off excess coating using an air jet is considered. A first-order partial differential equation is derived and solved both to obtain the steady-state coating shape and to determine the evolution of any defects that may form. Analysis of possible mechanisms for defect formation is discussed. A simple heat transfer model is developed to consider the possibility of phase changes over the relevant section of the process.
