In the present paper, the problem of molten metals and alloys stirring by a rotating magnetic field is discussed using experimental data and the semi-empirical ``external" friction model. Characteristic flow parameters (mean and turbulent ones) determining the stirring quality are discussed. Figs 2, Refs 9.
