Electromagnetic Processing of Materials

  • Shigeo AsaiEmail author
Part of the Fluid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (FMIA, volume 99)


In this chapter, we enumerate some functions of electric and magnetic fields as they act on electrically conductive fluids and we explain their contents on the basis of the knowledge of magnetohydrodynamics discussed in the previous chapter. Furthermore, based on these functions, we classify the technologies that use electromagnetic force. Then, we explore how to utilize each function in practical processes by giving some concrete examples. Since we believe that creation of new functions is the best way to fully understand the development of Electromagnetic Processing of Materials, we expect readers to actively propose and apply functions of their own devising.
