A model of the BOF converter has been developed to understand and optimise the operation of industrial ArcelorMittal units. The Eddy-Break-Up model of combustion is used to account for the effects of turbulence, incorporated within the SCRS scheme of Spalding  and radiation is represented using a radiosity model. The Counter-Diffusion-Method (CDM)  is used to predict the instantaneous steel bath surface deformation, caused by the impact of a high speed oxygen jet and a scheme is proposed to estimate the droplet mass ejected from the cavity to the gaseous phase by shear. The model is validated against experimental data and simulations by other researchers.
