Hot-State Numerical Simulation Study on Top-Blown Bath in ISA Furnace
The 3D numerical models of a single free falling bubble hitting water surface and multi bubbles floating upward and fusing have been achieved by considering the influences of surface tension and wall functions in theoretical framework of VOF. On that basis, the 3D hot-state numerical model for simulating top-blown bath in ISA furnace is presented. The influences of the injection flow rate and the depth of immersion on mixing behavior and temperature distribution are discussed. The results of this paper provide the reference of theory calculation of optimizing operation of ISA furnace.
