Numerical flow analyses are performed to clarify the characteristics of a molten steel flow in the continuous casting mold using the electromagnetic stirring. The usage and variables of the linear induction motor in electromagnetic stirring are noted in the analysis. Uniformity of the circulating flow velocity is examined quantitatively. Especially, influences of the installed level of the linear induction motor which is one of the most important usage of the linear induction motor, and the pole number, which is one of the most important linear induction motor variables, on the molten steel flow are intrduced.
