Simulation of 3D MHD with Free Surface Using Open-source EOF-library


Abstract

Recently, the finite element multi-physics simulation software Elmer was coupled with the computational fluid dynamics software OpenFOAM using parallel two-way coupler EOF-Library. In order to verify the software is applicable to magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) problems involving alternating electromagnetic fields and conductive fluids with a free surface we perform a 3D numerical simulation of levitating liquid metal in an alternating electromagnetic field and compare our results against the results of analogous numerical simulations.
