© 2016 IEEE. This paper simulates the melting process and liquid titanium droplet formation in electromagnetic levitation melting (EML) process by using the finite element method. The modelling of the physical EML process involves the coupling of electromagnetic, thermal, and fluid flow fields. The bidirectional interactions of different fields are also consided. The electrical parameters, such as frequency, current, and number of turns of the excitation coils, which might affect the size of droplet, are studied. The arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian formulation is employed to model the deformation of metal sample during the melting process. The results show that the method adopted in this paper could dynamically predict the melting process, and size of the droplet could be controlled by modifying the electrical parameters.
