Thermal Behavior Modeling of Interior Refractory Lining of Torpedo-Ladle by Finite Element Method
Torpedo-ladle was widely used in hot metal transportation. As its insulation properties had deep influence on the quality of iron and steel during the metallurgy process, the method to improve the insulation properties of torpedo-ladle was concerned widely. The results of this paper showed that either using lower thermal conductivity or increasing the thickness of insulation lining could effectively improve torpedo thermal insulation properties by solving the 3-D model with ANSYS.
