A three-dimensional numerical simulation to study the effect of magnetic field on the fluid flow, heat and mass transfer is investigated. By applying axial and rotating magnetic field (RMF), an attempt was made to suppress the buoyancy convection in the Ge0.98 Si0.02 solution zone in order to get homogeneity with flat growth interface. It was found that the intensity of the flow at the centre of the crucible decreased at a faster rate compared to the flow near the walls when increasing axial magnetic field intensity. This behaviour created a stable and uniform silicon distribution in the horizontal plane near the growth interface. Different magnetic field intensities for different rotational speeds (2, 7 and 10 rpm) were examined. The results showed that the RMF has a marked effect on the silicon concentration, changing it from convex to nearly flat when the magnetic field intensity increased.
