Electromagnetic stirring (EMS) of metallic alloys is mainly used to refine the grain structure of castings. This technique results in increased homogeneity of the cast alloys. In this paper a design oriented approach to a linear electromagnetic stirrer is presented. A mathematical model of such a stirrer is proposed to obtain electromagnetic field solutions. The field solutions so obtained are compared with those obtained from the finite-element model. The influences of excitation frequency and current on the induced current density and axial force and their variation with radius have been investigated. Experimental results obtained from a prototype are presented.
