Modeling of magnetic fields

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


This course is aimed at showing how to understand and solve problems of melt flow under magnetic fields during crystal growth from the melt. The course involves the following points. The first part of the course focuses on an analytical approach for determining the effects of external forces based on gravitational acceleration and of rotations of a crystal and a crucible on convection. Analysis of the effects of electric, magnetic and electromagnetic forces on the melt convection will be also introduced.
