Emulsification of slag and metal is very important for removal of carbon from liquid steel melt. The volume of fluid method (VOF) has been used to see the interaction of oxygen slag and metal in oxygen steelmaking process. Simultaneously discrete phase model (DPM) was used to judge the effect of iron ore addition during steelmaking process. The effect of both bottom purging as well as without bottom purging condition was judged through computational fluid dynamics model. Lastly a novel metallurgical reactor was developed which will be highly potential to create rapid mixing of melt, slag, lime, scrap and oxygen.
