A rupture of a metal strand is one of the most severe disruption that can happen during steel production. To avoid this accident, it is essential to measure the temperature profile of the metal strand in order to identify the development of cracks. For this task a matrix of up to 120 spatially distributed sensors is used. The sensor matrix is located at the inner side of the ingot mold that is oriented to the...
