1 Introduction Due to the high economic importance of iron and steel, the reduction behavior of iron oxides is one of the most frequently investigated topics in ferrous metallurgy. In 2016, 1.63 billion tons of crude steel were produced all over the world, 1 and 73.7% of total production was done via the blast furnace and basic oxygen converter process route. 1 In a blast furnace,
2018/11/14Coreless induction furnaces are commonly used in foundries for melting recycled scrap metal to provide molten metal for making castings (Figure 1). In a coreless induction furnace, electromagnetic stirring of the molten metal bath occurs when power is applied to the furnace. Bath motion is present throughout the bath, ensuring good mixing

A Review of Mathematical Process Models for the Electric Arc Furnace Process
As metal–slag reactions are heterogeneous reactions, they are usually controlled by mass transfer owing to the high temperatures involved. For the purposes of mathematical modeling, it is usually permissible to assume that the mass transfer resistance lies entirely in the diffusion boundary layer between phases; this approach was first proposed by Nernst [ 95 ] in 1904.
