Paper Title:
Induction Heating of an Aluminum Billet: A Numerical Study of the Thermal Behavior
  Abstract

In the present work, the heat transfer behavior during induction heating of a cylindrical aluminum billet is performed numerically. The heating process is represented by the energy conservation equation where the heat generation during heating is added as a volumetric source term. The evolution of latent heat during melting is also added as a volumetric source term. The continuity and the momentum conservation equations are considered to represent the flow field after melting starts. These governing equations are solved based on the control volume method. The enthalpy update scheme is used for evolution of melt-fraction during heating. The work predicts the evolution of temperature during heating, the distributions of temperature and melt-fraction in the domain. Subsequently, a parametric study is also performed.
