Furnaces are most commonly used for melting of materials. Induction furnaces are more beneficial as no fuel is required. It is a problem to find life of Induction Melting Furnace wall under thermal fatigue. The induction melting furnace wall is made of alumina ramming mass which is one kind of refractory material. The failure occurs due to cyclic thermal stresses. Temperature distribution and thermal stress distribution fields of the induction melting furnace refractory wall were calculated by using ANSYS finite element analysis software based on the physical description of its failure under thermal fatigue conditions. The thermal fatigue life of the refractory wall is required to be
