Application of Magnetohydrodynamics to Steelmaking Process
Recent applications of Magnetohydrodynamics to the steelmaking process are reviewed. Many applications have been developed in the field of steelmaking because of the demand to employ clean and efficient remote actions for various states of the liquid and solid steels by using various functions such as heating, stirring, braking and shaping. Not only the endeavor of the technological development but of the theoretical investigations play important roles. Plenty of R&D has been tried, and some of the technologies are already established and some are still in the very fundamental stage or interrupted because of their difficulties. In this review, some of the latter cases are also picked up, because the recent or future progress in the surrounding technologies or the change in the demand might lead to the retrial of the development.
