This thesis proposes a way of simulating the continuous casting process of steel using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). It deals with the SPH modeling of mass, momentum and the energy equations. The interpolation kernel functions required for the SPH modeling of these equations are calculated. Solidification is modeled by some particles are used to represent fluids and others solids. Elastic forces are calculated between the particle neighbors to create deformable bodies. The fluid solidifies into the elastic body when it cools down and the elastic body melts as it is heated. In continuous casting the molten metal solidifies forming a shell when it comes in contact with the cold wall. The mold of the continuous casting is modeled with a cold oscillating wall and a symmetric wall. Once the shell is formed water is sprayed on the solidified metal. If the shell is thin and cooling is not sufficient, the elastic body melts due to the effect of the hot fluid.
