Electromagnetic cold crucible (EMCC) is one of the most important inductive heating method for melting materials. The magnetic pressure which presents the melts from coming into contact with the inner wall of water-cooled copper crucible suppresses the contamination of reactive metals such as rare earth metals. It is highlighted that the relationship between the parameters related to the configuration of cold crucible, frequency and electric power affects the stabilized non-contact working condition and total energy transfer efficiency. In a joint numerical and experimental study, designing various processing variables and parameters should be investigated to understand physical mechanism and to enhance operation aspect to efficiency of the whole system. In this study, multiphysics consisting of electromagnetic field, heat transfer and fluid dynamics have been solved by a commercial finite element method code.
