SNPTRD was planning to employ cold crucible induction heating technique to investigate the corium pool heat transfer, using the UO2 and ZrO2 mixture as the simulated corium pool. Compared with the actual situation, the primary problem of the cold crucible induction heating was the additional introduction of electromagnetic field. To investigate the cold crucible applicability in simulating the corium pool heat transfer, the distribution of joule heat inside cold crucible and the magnitude of electromagnetic force were carried out. To be more suitable for heat transfer test research, the shape of cold crucible was changed to hemisphere, and the cooling water channels were set horizontally. The simulation results indicated that joule heat distribution would be more uniform with lower frequency power but considering power efficiency, there was only one best frequency. The magnitude of electromagnetic force can be ignored compared to the gravity on the natural convection research.
