In this study, a mathematical model was developed to simulate 2-D axisymmetric melt flow under magnetic field in a cylindrical container. The modeling of this process required the simultaneous solution of the turbulent Navier-Stokes equations together with Maxwell equations. The flow pattern in liquid bath was obtained using a two-equation κ-є turbulent flow model, which was further used to obtain the solute distribution. The governing differential equations were solved numerically using finite volume based finite difference method. The computed results, were found to be in good agreement with the measurements reported in the literature. The effect of stirring parameters on temperature homogeneity of the melt have been discussed and presented.
