Computational Modelling and Electromagnetic-CFD Coupling inCasting Processes.

Abstract : Many of the processes used in thesteelmaking industry (e.g. ingot casting,continuous casting, …) can lead todefects: macro-segregation, poormicrostructure properties, surfacedefects. These issues can be solved bycontrolling the temperature and the flowof molten steel. Electromagnetic stirring(EMS) is a widely used technique to steerthe flow of liquid steel by thesuperimposition of an electro-magneticfield. This application is complex becauseit couples several physical problems:multi-phase flow, solidification, heattransfer and low frequency electromagneticinduction. In addition,experimental work is difficult because ofthe size, environment and cost of theconsidered processes. For thesereasons, efficient and effective numericalsimulations are needed to understandEMS applications and improve theaforementioned processes.The objective of this thesis is to developa robust, efficient and accurate numericalprocedure for the multi-physicssimulation of EMS, especially for in-moldstirring in the framework of continuouscasting of steel. This procedure has beenimplemented in the commercial codeTHERCAST® in order to be used forindustrial applications.
