Abstract

3D unsteady convection of low-Prandtl-number liquid (Pr = 0.015) in a model Czochralski crystal growth system is numerically simulated on the base of conjugate heat transfer formulation. Computations using the full Navier-Stokes equations with no turbulence model have been carried out for the Rayleigh number of 5x10’. Effects of crucible rotation and stationary axial magnetic field on the convection are investigated.
