There are many processes, particularly in the nuclear and metals processing industries, where electromagnetic fields are used to influence the flow behaviour of a fluid. Procedures exploiting finite volume (FV) methods in both structured and unstructured meshes have recently been developed which enable this influence to be modelled in the context of conventional FV CFD codes. A range of problems have been tackled by the authors, including electromagnetic pumps and brakes, weirs and dams in steelmaking tundishes and interface effects in aluminium smelting cells. Two cases are presented here, which exemplify the application of the new procedures. The first case investigates the influence of electromagnetic fields on solidification front progression in a tin casting and the second case shows how the liquid metals free surface may be controlled through an externally imposed magnetic field in the semi-levitation casting process.
