The effects of a constant uniform magnetic field on dendritic solidification were investigated using a 2-dimensional enthalpy based numerical model. The interaction between thermoelectic currents and the magnetic field generates a Lorentz force that creates a flow. This flow causes a change in the morphology of the dendrite; secondary growth is promoted on one side of the dendrite arm and the tip velocity of the primary arm is increased.
