The Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) was one of six papers to be featured in the December 2014 edition of Iron & Steel Technology. The paper used computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to study the relationship between iron ore reducibility, coke reactivity, and blast furnace operations. The paper’s findings will help the iron and steel industry better understand the processes involved in the blast furnace and the effects that the different components have on those processes.
