Modelling of the Refractory Lining in an Electric Arc furnace

Goals of the project

This is mathematical modelling project. The goal of this project is to develop a model that can be used to predict the refractory behavior in an electric arc furnace of steel plant. An accurate prediction model could decrease the refractory costs in steel plants.
