Abstract Scope In a blast furnace, hot pressurized air is forced into a packed bed of coke to create heat and reducing gases for turning iron ore into liquid iron. Currently, operators generally rely on rules of thumb to estimate the response of the furnace to changing conditions. Given high operating costs involved, it is often impractical to study these impacts in the field. The complexity of the process means that optimization can be difficult, and misguided attempts can increase costs and causing stability issues. The project objective is to develop a software capable of using pre-generated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) data detailing the blast furnace internal state under different operating conditions to quickly predict the impacts on blast furnace performance. Using this data, interpolation and curve-fitting will be applied to predict furnace operation under conditions not previously calculated. Additionally, a web-based GUI will be developed to enhance ease-of-use.
