A cold crucible is used for the manufacturing of alloys that require a high degree of purity, like titanium alloys for the aeronautic industry. The cold crucible in this model is made of several water-cooled copper sectors that form the container in which the alloy is manufactured.
The harmonic current flowing in the coils will induce a current in the crucible flowing in the opposite direction along the edge of the crucible. The induced currents produced in each of the sectors makes the crucible act like a field concentrator. Heat is generated in the melt for refining purposes.
This model simulates the electromagnetic fields and induced current.
