Paper Title:
Global Modeling of Directional Solidification of Aluminum Alloys Using the Software Package CrysVUn
  Abstract

A global numerical model of a Bridgman furnace is developed and validated. The model includes heat transfer due to radiation and conduction in a stationary setup. The rotating magnetic field (RMF) device mounted on the facility is implemented into the model also. A numerical study on the flow field caused by the axial non-uniform RMF and natural convection is performed, helping to get a better understanding of the convective conditions during the directional solidification experiments.
