    Notes: In this paper we give a numerical method based on finite element discretizations to simulate the thermoelectrical behaviour of electrodes for electric reduction furnaces. After introducing the mathematical model we take advantage of the cylindrical symmetry of the problem to compute boundary conditions for the Maxwell equations. Thermal and electrical problems are coupled and non-linear because of the Joule effect and the fact that thermal conductivity and electrical resistivity depend on temperature. A classical piecewise linear finite element method on a triangular mesh is used to discretize weak formulations in cylindrical co-ordinates for the two problems. Then an iterative algorithm is proposed to solve the coupled discrete system. Numerical results are shown both for an analytical test and for a real industrial electrode. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
