The article describes a numerical model of solidification of the SnPb alloy with electromagnetic stirring. The model is based on two open access computational codes. Comparison of the results of the calculation of directional horizontal solidification with natural and electromagnetically forced convection forces is presented. It is shown that the electromagnetic driven flow can affect the final segregation map only at the first stage of the solidification process. Tables 1, Figs 8, Refs 30.
