This work aims at developing a reliable and efficient strategy to simulate electromagnetic stirring applications in steelmaking industry, especially for in-mould stirring in continuous casting and for ingot casting processes. Several advanced numerical tools have been used to enhance the simulation capabilities and a coupling numerical scheme has been proposed to couple the different physics involved in the simulation. This coupling strategy has been developed in a commercial software focused on casting simulations. Finally, the model has been tested and compared to experimental and numerical results present in the literature. Tables 3, Figs 6, Refs 10.
