Leading topic of this article is description of Lorentz forces in the container with cuboid shape. Inside of the container is an electrically conductive melt. Lorentz forces are caused by rotating magnetic field. Lorentz forces were calculated by analytic formula. This formula was derived for cylindrical container. Using this formula for cuboid container was assumed. Results were compared with Lorentz forces from CFD computing program NS-FEM3D. Areas of differences were recognized and displayed.
