The authors investigate the effects of double-axis electromagnetic stirring (DAEMS) in continuous casting process, which is composed of a rotational electromagnetic stirrer and a vertical electromagnetic stirrer, using unsteady 3-D hydrodynamic calculation of the molten gallium model. To evaluate the free-surface stability, averaged standard deviation of the free surface is calculated. From the calculation results, it is found that there is an optimum intensity balance between a vertical magnetic stirrer and a rotational magnetic in order to stabilize the free surface.
