This paper proposes a coupled method of 3-D finite element method (FEM) and moving particle semi-implicit (MPS) method for the analysis of cold crucible induction melting. In this method, the magnetic field is calculated by FEM and the fluid motion equation of the molten metal and the thermal distribution in the molten metal are calculated by the MPS method. In this paper, the phase transformation of the metal is not considered. The effectiveness of this method is verified through the analysis of the molten metal behavior in the crucible.
