Design and Operation of Induction Furnaces

The metallurgical company Ferroatlantica R & D needed to know the behaviour of induction furnaces, which was very costly, in order to melt silicon. The research group mat + i, a regular collaborator of ITMATI, developed  a software tool to improve the design and operation of induction furnaces. Numerical simulation helped studying the problem even before buying the furnace.

  • Temperature distribution in a section of the silicon crucible.
  • Current density distribution in the whole of the silicon crucible.
