This paper addresses the effect of thermosolutal convection in the formation of defects in directionally solidified alloys. The numerical model is based on a bi-dimensional solution consisting of an implicit time integration scheme to couple thermal and solutal fields, which is supported by a finite volume numerical modeling technique. In this article, the macrosegregation phenomenon under a static magnetic field effect is analyzed numerically by a computer code developed and validated with experimental data. The numerically obtained results have been widely discussed in dependence of the characteristic parameters of the studied problem.
