• Interfacial Behaviour in Ferroalloys: The Influence of Sulfur in FeMn and SiMn Systems 

      Bublik, Sergey; Bao, Sarina; Tangstad, Merete; Einarsrud, Kristian Etienne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The present study has investigated the influence of sulfur content in synthetic FeMn and SiMn from 0 to 1.00 wt pct on interfacial properties between these ferroalloys and slags. The effect of experimental parameters such ...
    • Inverse modelling of interfacial tension between ferroalloy and slag using openfoam 

      Bublik, Sergey; Einarsrud, Kristian Etienne (Chapter, 2020)
      The entrainment of molten ferroalloy droplets in slag during tapping operations is strongly related to turbulence and interfacial forces between alloy and slag. Therefore, interfacial phenomena are of great importance for ...
    • Investigation of Two Immiscible Liquids Wetting at Elevated Temperature: Interaction Between Liquid FeMn Alloy and Liquid Slag 

      Bao, Sarina; Tangstad, Merete; Tang, Kai; Einarsrud, Kristian Etienne; Syvertsen, Martin; Onsøien, Morten Ingar; Kudyba, Artur; Bublik, Sergey (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The goal of the current work is to develop a methodology to study the wetting behaviour of two immiscible liquids at high temperatures, and to investigate the parameters which influence the wetting properties. The wetting ...
    • A Review of Ferroalloy Tapping Models 

      Bublik, Sergey; Olsen, Jan Erik; Loomba, Varun; Reynolds, Quinn Gareth; Einarsrud, Kristian Etienne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Tapping is an important furnace operation in the ferroalloy industry and poses a number of complex and coupled challenges of both practical and economical importance. Owing to the hazardous high-temperature conditions ...
    • Slag Properties in the Primary Production Process of Mn-Ferroalloys 

      Tangstad, Merete; Bublik, Sergey; Haghdani, Shokouh; Einarsrud, Kristian Etienne; Tang, Kai (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The present study has investigated the influence of sulfur content in synthetic FeMn and SiMn from 0 to 1.00 wt pct on interfacial properties between these ferroalloys and slags. The effect of experimental parameters such ...
    • Slag-metal interactions in the FeMn tapping process: Interfacial properties and wetting 

      Bublik, Sergey; Bao, Sarina; Tangstad, Merete; Einarsrud, Kristian Etienne (Chapter, 2019)
      FeMn-alloys are produced by transforming ore and carbon materials into FeMn and slag at high temperatures in a furnace. Entrainment of FeMn in slag during tapping reduces the yield. Entrainment and subsequent separation ...
