Article Preview

On the basis of conventional hot-top casting and Casting, Refining and Electromagnetic process, a lower frequency electromagnetic field was applied during the hot-top casting process. A comprehensive two-dimensional (2-D) mathematical model based upon the ANSYS and FLUENT has been developed for the computation of the electromagnetic field, solidification, fluid flow and heat transport during conventional and low frequency electromagnetic hot-top casting processes. The results show that there is a good agreement between the experimental results and calculated results.
