Liquid Metal Channel Flow  under the Influence of an Inhomogeneous
Magnetic Field. Numerical Study

Abstract:
Studies of a liquid metal flow under a local inhomogeneous magnetic field are of
importance to develop the
technique of electromagnetic braking in the processes of continuous steel
casting. Such a flow in a rectangular
channel was earlier experimentally investigated. In the talk I present numerical
computations for the flow and
the electrical potential in the same geometry and the same magnetic field and
compare with results measured
in the experiment.
