Effect of Particle Characteristic on Cooling Process of High Temperature Sinter


Article Preview

In the paper, a 1-D unsteady mathematical model is used to analyze the cooling process of high temperature sinter. The modeling result is compared with measured data, and the agreement is good. The effect of sinter particle size and void fraction on the cooling process of the annular cooler has been investigated.
