The aim of this research is an investigation of hot surface orientation influence on heat transfer during cooling by a nozzle. Two types of nozzles were used for the experiments (air-mist nozzle and hydraulic nozzle). A test plate was cooled in three positions – top, side and bottom position. The aim was to simulate a cooling situation in the secondary zone of a continuous casting machine. Temperature was measured in seven locations under the cooled surface by thermocouples. These data were used for an inverse heat conduction problem and then boundary conditions were computed. These boundary conditions are represented by surface temperature, heat transfer coefficient and heat flux. Results from an inverse calculation were compared in each position of thermocouples separately. The total cooling intensity was specified for all configurations of nozzles and test plate orientation. Results are summarised in a graphical and numerical format.
