Abstract:The present study describes a numerical model for fluid flow in a continuous slab casting mould with electromagnetic brake (EMBR). The model was solved using the finite difference method and the SIMPLER algorithm. A staggered grid system for fluid flow and electromagnetic field calculation was proposed for the discretisation of governing equations. The simulated fluid flow was validated with water-based experiments and a classic benchmark of driven cavity flow. Results show that the EMBR abates the flow velocities, alleviates the shearing stress at the mould narrow face and restrains the free surface fluctuation. It is also found that an intense electromagnetic field may change the flow pattern in the continuous casting mould.
