Abstract:The temperature field of aluminum ingot during electromagnetic continuous casting was calculated by the numerical method, and the effects of cooling water strength, position of the cooling water holes and pouring temperature as well as induction heat on casting speed, were studied. The results show that among the technical parameters the distance from the position of the cooling water holes to the bottom of the mold is the most important factor, whose change from 20mm to 15mm and from 15mm to 10mm causes the setting rate increasing respectively by 0.14mm/s and 0.3mm/s.The calculated results also agree with the experiment well. The simulation program can be used to determine technical parameters of electromagnetic casting of aluminum ingot effectively.
Key words: continuous casting; electromagnetic field; temperature field; casting speed; aluminum alloy.
