“MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMICS IN METALLURGICAL PROCESSES USING ELECTRIC CURRENTS”

19 de septiembre de 2017 11:30 horas

" In metallurgy, electric currents are applied for heating, melting, and for promoting electrochemical mass transfer. The currents are passed through low conductivity media such as a salt, slags, or plasmas to generate high Joule heating intensity. Typical processes are electric arc furnaces, aluminum reduction cells, welding, electroslag and vacuum arc remelting. Such processes are naturally stirred by the Lorentz forces resulting from the interaction of the applied current with its own self magnetic field (created by the current itself)..."
