A three-dimensional multiphase CFD model using an Eulerian approach is developed to simulate the process of pulverized coal injection into a blast furnace. The model provides the detailed fields of fluid flow velocity, temperatures, and compositions, as well as coal mass distributions during the devolatilization and combustion of the coal. This paper focuses on coal devolatilization and combustion in the space before entering the raceway of the blast furnace. Parametric studies have been conducted to investigate the effect of coal properties and injection operations.
