Agglomeration behaviour of inclusions at the liquid steel/gas and the liquid steel/slag interfaces, are observed in-situ by confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). A revision of the Paunov simplified model has been made. Subsequently, the performance of this model has been validated against the experimental data from in-situ observations using CLSM. The effects of the inclusion density, contact angle, and surface tension on the capillary force are studied. The results show that inclusion density and contact angle have a more marked effect on the capillary force than surface tension. Finally, future work focusing on inclusion agglomeration by CLSM will be suggested.
