DOE Sponsors Research into CFD for Blast Furnace Ironmaking
Posted Fri November 02, 2007 @09:41AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Pulverized coal injection (PCI) for blast furnace ironmaking has become widely used in North America to improve furnace operating efficiencies. In the PCI process, fine granules of coal are blown into the furnace in large volumes, partially replacing coke, which is expensive and environmentally hazardous to produce and handle.

But, there are still unknown aspects to the PCI process, and a new study has been initiated by the U.S. Dept. of Energy under its Industrial Technologies Program to discover more about the process and how it alters the efficiencies of blast furnaces.

Application ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that ANSYS engineering simulation software assisted the BMW Sauber F1 Team, who has more than double last year's points total in the 2007 Constructors' Championship.

Prior to the season, the BMW Sauber F1 Team signed an extended agreement with Fluent Deutschland, a subsidiary of ANSYS, Inc., to use FLUENT(R) computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software to run powerful engineering simulations on its new supercomputer -- one of the largest in Europe -- rather than invest in a second wind tunnel.
