The paper presents further progress in using mutual inductance tomography (MIT) system for molten metal flow visualisation. The MIT image which is the electric conductivity map is the shape of the flow. For the image reconstruction we applied an inverse finite element technique that is able to reconstruct fully 3D MIT images for the purpose of molten steel flow. The experimental tests has been conducted and the results for simulation flow model as well experimental results presented.
