Abstract

An iterative numerical procedure has been used to determine the equilibrium meniscus shape in a coreless induction melting furnace by coupling calculations of the meniscus shape with the electromagnetic field. The electromagnetic and force fields have been then calculated for the predicted equilibrium meniscus shape of the molten metal. The finite element method (OPERA-2d) has been used to model the axisymmetric electromagnetic field and the skin effect has been considered in all conductors. Satisfa
