Abstract A mathematical model to predict the temperature distribution of a slab in a continuous reheating furnace has been developed. An essential feature of the model is to consider the effects of the local temperature of the skid, the walls, and gas in the furnace as individual radiant heat sources. The READ (Radiative Energy Absorption Distribution) method is employed to calculate the local heat flux on the slab surface. Several numerical investigations have been performed concerning the relations between the temperature distribution of slab and the conditions of the skids and gas using the two-dimensional unsteady model. Numerical results lead to the conclusion that one of the important factors to minimize the "skid mark", is that both of the position of the skid beams and the temperature profile of gas must be optimized at the same time.
