The model is presented for designing electromagnetic dams for the containment of metal melts. It is applied to compute side dams for the casting of steel strip with the belt/roll process. The electromagnetic field was obtained with the mutual induction method. Optimization algorithms were applied to determine the inductor configuration and to calculate the final shape of the melt. Experiments with Wood'smetal have been conducted demonstrating that the designed inductor functioned as predicted.
