Abstract

Liquid flow in blast furnaces has a significant influence on gas flow and pressure drop. Therefore, the stability of blast furnace operations and productivity are affected by liquid flow. In a furnace, liquid flows in a packed bed consisting of coke. Holdup is an important phenomenon in packed bed flow. It changes with the variation of the packed bed structure and the physical properties of the liquid. In this study, a numerical simulation for packed bed flow is carried out. The effects of a packed bed structure on holdup phenomena were analyzed by the moving particle semi-implicit (MPS) method.
