The research here supported Tata Steel at Port Talbot in assessing options for improving their environmental dust control from off-gas flows from their blast furnace. The CFD model of the process involved multi-phase turbulent flows in rather complex geometries, and had complex fine mixed element meshes with the order of a million elements, solved on high performance parallel clusters. The principal objective was to assess the existing design and to develop and evaluate improved design options to optimise its performance; the resulting optimal designs were patented with Tata, who are now in negotiation for the exploitation by key construction companies.
