Hi All, I'm working on a process involving induction heating. I'm heating up an irregular shape ss die to make a bond. My dilemma is in my understanding of where the eddy currents will be that generate the heat (based on skin effect). The clam shell die is pictured below. The right hand image is the orientation that the die will be in, centered in the coil. The interface of the clamshell halves does not seem to impact the heat profile as compared to a one-piece die. I'm concerned with skin effect- the indentation is where I need heat to be generated. Will eddy currents be generated on this surface and therefore heat the "internal surface"? Or does the peripheral surface prevent the current from generating current in the indented area and the heat observed is from dissipation from the outer surface heating? This is time sensitive so any and all answers are appreciated. Thanks in advanced!
