A mathematical model based on the equations of particle motion was used to predict inclusion behavior observed at steel-slag interface in an in-situ Confocal Scanning Laser Microscope. The results show that the model can be used to explain some phenomena observed in the experiments. In addition, a parameter study was done in order to illustrate how the model can be used to study the effect of physical properties on the inclusion behavior at the slag-steel interface for some typical industrial ladle metallurgy conditions. Furthermore, to study the effect of steel temperature, sulfur and oxygen content in the steel, slag and inclusion density as well as initial inclusion velocity on the inclusions behavior at the slag-steel interface. The results show that the temperature and initial velocity was of less importance and that the oxygen content in the steel had a larger influence on the inclusion behavior than the sulfur content in the steel.
