The present project aims at the development of a dual wavelength thermographic
camera system which shall be used for contactless monitoring of slag
temperature in the Böhler BEST steel solidification process. The
final product will also allow to quantitatively characterize the
flow patterns that can be observed on the ingot's slag topping in
realtime. Eventually both the temperature and the flow pattern information
will serve as input parameters for online process control. The report
summarizes the current status of the project provides an overview
of the experiments carried out so far and gives some insight into
the challenges encountered in the rough environment of a steel plant.
The report also gives a short overview of the software modules developed
so far as well as the underlying algorithms in particular the KLT
