Experimental observations revealed that the stagnant zone, which forms in the lower central part of a blast furnace, is an important feature of solid flow, and that it is affected strongly by gas flow. However, it is difficult to model this feature within the framework of continuum mechanics without empirical or arbitrary treatments. This paper reports the… CONTINUE READING
