AbstractAbstract An analysis of the influences of a high frequency (30 kHz) alternating current on the uniformity of the magnetic field (B) in an electromagnetic casting (EMC) mould is investigated by means of parametric numerical simulations where the induction current (Js) varies in the range of [1 to 10000 A]. The results show that values of the magnetic flux density along the casting direction (Bz) near the square mould corners are small, compared to those at the other locations where Js < 10000 A, and that the magnitude of Bz increases with an increased induction current (Js). Furthermore, it is shown that, for the EMC mould structure investigated in this paper, the increase of Js worsen the uniformity of the magnetic, especially for the regions near molten steel level. Moreover, the effective acting region (Rbz) for the critical magnetic field (Bzc) is first introduced in this paper, which opens an interesting topic for future research.
