Abstract [en]

The influence of electromagnetic stirring in an electric arc furnace (EAF) has been studied. Using numerical modeling the effect of electromagnetic stirring on the thermal stratification and fluid flow has been investigated. The finite element method (FEM) software was used to compute the electromagnetic forces, and the fluid flow and heat and mass transfer equations were solved using a finite volume method (FVM) software. The results show that electromagnetic stirring has a significant effect on temperature homogenization and mixing efficiency in the bath. The important part of this study was calculation of heat transfer coefficient. The results show, electromagnetic stirring improves the heat transfer from the melt to scrap which is dependent on the stirring direction and force magnitudes.
