Splashing plays a significant role in the kinetics of the oxygen steelmaking process but not well understood. This paper presents a computational study on the generation and quantification of the splashing in oxygen steelmaking converter by a multi-fluid volume of fluid model. The generation mechanism of the droplets was explored and the splashing rate was quantified based on the blowing number theory. The effect of lance height and operation pressure on the splashing rate was also discussed and quantitatively compared. The typical splashing rate is in the range of 6.1~34.4 kg·Nm3 for the present conditions. The decline of lance height or the increase of operation pressure lead to more splashing are generated and essentially increases the blowing number and splashing rate.
