Nowadays aluminium is essentially produced according to the Hall-H~roult process, in other words, by electrolysis of alumina A1 0 desolved in molten cryolite Na A1F at a 2 3 3 6 temperature of about 950 C. In a reduction plant cells are connected in series. For technical and economical reasons, it is advisable to choose large nominal currents (150 kAle For such intensities, the electromagnetic effects in the cells become important. In particular, these effects bring about movements in the liauid metal, as well as interface variations in level, that are detrimental to efficiencv and energy consumption [l,~ * For an optimal design, it is necessary to predetermine the electromagnetic behaviour of each new typ of cells. It is specially necessary to calculate the repartition of the current density in each point of the cell (electric problem), and the magnetic induction produced in the liquid metal by the currents circulating in the cell itself, in the near cells and in the external conductors (magnetic problem). Electric problem formulation Stationary electric phenomena are described by the equations ~ ...rotE=O (1) ...divJ=O (2) t=f1 (3) The first equation can be replaced by t=-g;tdU (4) where U is the electric potential. J. -M. BLANC 131 ~ -+ We can eliminate E and J between the equations above. In an homogeneous material, we obtain a Laplace's equation (5) 4u=0 On surfaces separating material of different resistivities, ...

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

I love lovereading4kids because I’ve read amazing books I would never have picked up, and its opened doors to new genre’s I now love.

Harriet Cunningham

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
