Cold model experiments were carried out to understand a swinging motion of the bath in the AOD process. Water and air were used as the working fluids. A water bath contained in a cylindrical vessel was agitated by side gas injection using an L-shaped lance. Under a certain blowing condition the surface of the bath swung in the vertical direction like a liquid column oscillating in a U-shaped tube. The preferable occurrence condition of this swinging motion was correlated with the size of a plume eye on the bath surface and the vessel diameter. Empirical equations were proposed for the period and amplitude of the swinging motion.
