A parametric simulator for a dezincification process industrial device analysis has been developed. The device is built upon a COMSOL Multiphysics magneto-thermo-hydraulic coupled model in a cylindrical coordinate system.
We study effects of electromagnetic forces on a cast iron load and consequently on Zn gas bubbles trajectories included in the metal.
Trajectories are obtained according to mass transfer and fundamental dynamic equations.
