The influence of vertical and steady electromagnetic force fields applied during the solidification of representative aluminum alloys was investigated. The experiments were performed both in the absence and in the presence of electromagnetic body force fields, oriented either upward or downward, and for various degrees of heat extraction rate. Several physical mechanisms of magnetohydrodynamic origin, acting on the macro- and microstructure of these alloys, have been revealed. It has been… CONTINUE READING
