Abstract

The effects of a constant uniform magnetic field on thermoelectric currents during dendritic solidification were investigated using an enthalpy based numerical model. It was found that the resulting Lorentz force generates a complex flow influencing the solidification pattern. Experimental work of material processing under high magnetic field conditions has shown that the microstructure can be significantly altered. There is evidence that these effects can be atrtributed to the Lorentz force created through the thermoelectric magentohydrodynamic interactions.[1,2] However the mechanism of how this occurs is not very well understood. In this paper, our aim is to investigate the flow field created from the Lorentz force and how this influences the morphology of dendritic growth for both pure materials and binary alloys.
