An ironmaking blast furnace is one of the most complex reactors working with a multiphase flow involving gas, liquid and solid. The solid phase is the most important phase among these three phases. Consequently, investigating the velocity profile of solid particles as a primary phase in the blast furnace is one of the major research focus during the last decay. Since the major outbreak of computer development during the last twenty years, mathematical modeling and numerical Solution plays an important role in the engineering development. Therefore, the solid particle behavior is modeled based on general conservation laws to investigate the profile of solid particles. The different properties of solid particles have different effect on the velocity profile of solid particles. Therefore, in this article, the effect of particle properties such as diameter, viscosity, density and volume fraction. on velocity profile of solid particles and blast furnace operation has been studied and reported.
