Using finite element method, the molten steel flow process in soft-contact electromagnetic continuous casting mold is simulated. The results show that the molten steel surface were affected by the electromagnetic force and shrink to the centre, near meniscus zone the flow velocity of steel increases and appears an obvious circumfluence, a large number of inclusion float and are absorbed by flux; on the other hand, the turbulent kinetic energy significant increases in circumfluence area, this exacerbates the reaction between flux and liquid steel, the initial size of the solidification organization are refined, and the surface quality of slab are enhanced.
