Numerical Simulation of Flow Field in Bloom Continuous Casting Mold with Electromagnetic Stirring
A coupled numerical simulation of magnetic field and flow field was conducted basing on Φ250mm bloom during continuous casting with electromagnetic stirring.The distribution of the flow field was analyzed in different current and frequency.At the same current,the velocity first decrease and then increase as the frequency increase along the casting direction.At the same frequency, tangential velocity is dominant in the radial of EMS center,velocity increase with the current. Considered the results of numerical simulation,the optimized EMS parameters of Φ250mm bloom are the stirring current of 480A and the stirring frequency of 3Hz.
