Abstract:

This paper presents a research work has been done through a project for designing, manufacturing, and installing a new electromagnetic caster (EMC) of double molds (double rectangular ingots of aluminum) in the Egyptalum Company.  The main design problem is to terminate the effects of the electromagnetic coupling, between the two molds, on the performance of the casting machine.   For this purpose a 3D multi-body Boundary Element formulation is derived and used to form the core of an iterative solution.  This solution is used for estimating the line frequency and currents, locating the one turn induction coils and the electromagnetic screen (EMS), and finally positioning the two molds inside the machine.
