Numerical simulations for inductive heating
In inductive heating and melting processes, there is a strong interdependence between the individual physical quantities that occur (such as the electromagnetic field, the temperature distribution or, if applicable, the flow rate of a molten metal) with the material properties of the insert and the electrical parameters of the induction system. With analytical methods it is not possible to adequately reproduce these mutual interactions and to meet the current high requirements for process reliability, quality and energy efficiency of production.
Numerical simulation with inductive heating achieves a better solution
For some years now, numerical simulations have established themselves as an indispensable tool in modern engineering in the automotive and aerospace industries. In this way, complex processes can be simulated with the aid of a computer, designed or planned with the highest precision, or data can be obtained that cannot be measured or can only be recorded with considerable effort.
The basic idea behind numerical simulations is based on the transfer of all relevant geometric and physical parameters of a problem into a virtual model. The geometry is then discretized into small sub-areas and forms the calculation area in which the equations of the physical quantities sought are iteratively solved, taking into account the process-specific boundary conditions.
