The paper “CFD modelling of pulverized coal combustion in a blast furnace test rig” by Ari Vuokila, Olli Mattila, Riitta L. Keiski, Esa Muurinen has just been published in “Industrial Combustion”, the online journal of the IFRF. The authors are affiliated to the University of Oulu and from SSAB in Finland. In this paper, a CFD model of pulverised coal combustion in the blast furnace tuyere-raceway area is presented for different coals, and compared to results from a test ring. The work described was intended for application in a SSAB steel factory in Raahe (FI). Based on the results, this model can be used to study limiting factors of combustion and gasification of PC in a blast furnace.
