Abstract

A new experimental technique and theory ‘Electrically Induced Vortical Flows’ enabled to develop a new method for studying hydrodynamics of current carrying melts, i.e. a physical modelling of velocity and pressure fields. The findings of the experiments correlating with theoretical models afford a possibility to safely determine peculiarities of any three-dimensional flows, to verify calculated data, to determine the existence of various flow régimes and the respective critical values of the parameters. The paper cites some examples for the modelling in question.
