Hurman Eric School of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa During the last one decade, significant work has been carried on physical modeling of high strength bottom blown refining converters. Two perspex water models of the stainless steel/ferroalloy refining converters known as Creusot Loire Uddeholm (CLU) reactors were constructed; one a 1/7th, the other a 1/5th of the scale of the actual industrial units. Water represented the metal phase and paraffin oil the slag phase as and when required. Air representing the gas phase was blown at very high rates through nozzles located at the bottom of the vessels. The air flow rate ranged from 0.005m 3 /s to 0.02m 3 /s. The position of the tuyeres (nozzles) was also among the variables in some of the test work. Apart from geometric similarity, dynamic similarity was met through the use of modified dimensionless Froude number. In modeling the reactor, the variables/properties

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
