Experimental and Computational Investigation of Rotary Electromagnetic Stirring in a Woods Metal System
J. Partinen, N. Saluja, J. Szekely, J. Kirtley, Jr.
An experimental and computational investigation was carried out in an electromagnetically stirred Woods metal system, and the associated free-surface deformation was studied. The free-surface velocities were measured at various strengths of the applied magnetic fields using high-speed video photography. The effect of the magnetic field strength of the electromagnetic stirrer on the free surface deformation was studied by varying the position of the melt relative to the electromagnetic stirrer. The calculated free surface deformation was compared to experimental observations made on a laboratory-scale installation.
