The overall purpose of this paper is to predict species evolution in a water-model hearth using a comprehensive three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code and to validate the code with experimental data. The water model is built to simulate the flow patterns in a blast furnace hearth. The water model is a 1/50th scale of Ispat Inlands’s BF#7. The data focus on time-dependent concentration profiles in a three-dimensional water model. The concentration is determined by using a fluorescence laser dye called rhodamine 590 chloride. The effects of flow rate and different geometries on species concentration evolution are studied.
