Linear induction motor type In-Mold Electro-Magnetic Stirrer "M-EMS" is equipped in most of the slab continuous caster in Nippon Steel Corp. to improve slab surface quality by stirring the molten steel flow. To satisfy the customer's permanent demand for high quality steel, the molten steel flow patterns in the casting mold, which reflects on the steel quality deeply, must be clarified and the flow control must be optimized against each casting conditions. Authors are carrying out "Electromagnetic process solution" in the casting field by applying Magneto-Hydro-Dynamic simulation to the molten steel flow process in order to evaluate and clarify quantitatively, and finally to control. In this paper, the established specification designing method using Magneto-Hydro-Dynamic simulation for M-EMS and other electromagnetic coils is shown.
