In the presented paper we describe the results of the experimental study of a liquid metal flow in a low-temperature model of a continuous casting facility equipped with two electromagnetic stirrers (EMS). The characteristics of turbulent melt flows in such facilities are computed on the basis of a semi-empirical model of ``external'' friction taking into account the experimental distribution of angular velocities along the liquid core of the ingot. The proposed mathematical model allows us to explain the features of the angular velocities distribution along the liquid core of the ingot. Figs 4, Refs 3.
