Panaitescu, I., Repetto, N., Leboucher, L. and Pericleous, K. (2002) Magneto-hydro-dynamic analysis of an electrolysis cell for aluminum production. Magnetics, IEEE Transactions on , 36 (4). pp. 1305-1308. ISSN 0018-9464Full text not available from this repository.
An electrolytic cell for Aluminum production contains molten metal subject to high currents and magnetic flux density. The interaction between these two fields creates electromagnetic forces within the liquid metal and can generate oscillations of the fluid similar to the waves at the free surface of oceans and rivers. The study of this phenomenon requires the simulation of the current density field, of the magnetic flux density field and the solution of the equations of motion of the liquid mass. An attempt to analyze the dynamical behavior of this problem is made by coupling different codes, based on different numerical techniques, in a single tool. The simulations are presented and discussed.
