julien23 is on a distinguished road

I am a Comsol user. I have modelize with Comsol a continuous casting process for silicon solidification in inductive cold crucible. The silicon feed stock is melted by induction heating. Induction heating (several kHz) gives rise to a strong electromagnetic stirring in the melt (turbulent flow). The problematic deals with multiple physics: induction heating, phase change, segregation of impurities at the solid-liquid interface...

I want to work now with Openfoam because CFD capabilities of Comsol are quite limited, no LES simulation available...

My question is: It is possible to modelize induction heating in a frequency domain in Openfoam (2D-axy or 3D)? In order to catch Lorentz forces and Joule heating termes for sources of CFD simulations

Someone can help me please?
