Paper Title:
Experimental and Numerical Study of the Influence of a Low-Frequency Electromagnetic Field on the As-Cast Structure of Horizontal Direct Chill Casting Aluminum Alloy Slab
  Abstract

The influences of low frequency electromagnetic field on the as-cast structure of horizontal direct chill casting aluminum alloy slab were experimental and numerical studied. The results of numerical analysis show that the interaction of the low-frequency electromagnetic field and the melt can generate an electromagnetically induced forced flow in the melt, which, in turn, changes flow pattern and temperature field in the mold. the as-cast structure of slab can be greatly improved by the changes of flow pattern and temperature field. The results of experimental analysis show that the grains of low frequency electromagnetic casting (LFEC) are fine, uniform, equiaxed, rosette-shaped; the surface of the slab of LFEC has no cold shut and less exudations. Moreover, the low-frequency electromagnetic field can improve the distribution of solute elements in the slab. The macrosegregation such as negative segregation and gravity segregation were reduced, which results in the homogenous distributions of the solute elements over the cross-section of the slab.
