Performance of many metallurgical operations where gas bubbles are injected into liquid baths, e.g., ladle degassing and desulfurization, is related to the level of bath circulation and agitation. This paper describes a method of calculating velocity fields and turbulence levels in these systems. The roles played by such factors as bubble size and volume of the two-phase gas/liquid region in determining the velocity field are examined. The applicability of fluid-flow calculations in preventing refractory failures is discussed.
