In recent years, steelmaking industries have encountered problems of raw materials resources and global environment, and made challenges to utilize low quality raw materials and to improve operation efficiency in ironmaking processes simultaneously. To attain these targets, it is necessary to understand phenomena in the furnace and to optimize the process based on them. This study focuses on multi-phase flow in blast furnace, especially on gas-liquid flow in the packed bed. A simulation method combining Moving Particle Semi-implicit (MPS) method for liquid flow and Simplified Maker And Cell (SMAC) method for gas flow was developed. With this model, the gas-liquid interaction was successfully included in the simulation and the variations of flow paths and patterns in the packed bed were analyzed. This model can be applied to the multi-phase flow analysis in the complicated domain shape and the analysis of flooding phenomena.
