Numerical Investigation Of The Transient Multiphase Flow In An Ironmaking Blast Furnace, Zongyan Zhou, Haiping Zhu, Aibing Yu, Paul Zulli

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

Discrete particle simulation (DPS) has been applied to multiphase flow modelling in an ironmaking blast furnace (BF), including burden distribution at the top, gas-solid flow in the BF shaft and raceway, and liquid-solid flow in the hearth. In this work, the approach is further extended to take into account the transient features of gas and particle flow coupled with liquid tapping operation. In the simulation, two types of particles of coke and ore with different physical properties are considered, together with different shapes of the cohesive zone and the shrinkage of size of ore particles in the cohesive zone to …
