The paper presents the analysis of the process of casting functionally graded composites under alternating electromagnetic field. The process utilizes the effect of electromagnetic buoyancy on nonconductive particles of the reinforcement in the conducting liquid (melted metal). The authors analyzed the possibilities of homogenizing the distribution of electromagnetic field in such a way as to obtain the desired direction of electromagnetic buoyancy and at the same time minimize the stirring of the molten metal, which makes it difficult to receive the optimal distribution of reinforcement in the casting. The suggested solution was to use the conductive elements of the mold to move the nonuniformity of the electromagnetic field outside the casting and a parabolic inductor to smooth the field distribution in the casting.
