Aduloju Sunday Christopher, Ebhota Williams Saturday, Bolarinwa Gabriel Oladeji, Owolabi Oluwasegun Biodun


Studies were carried out on the charge material and energy required by an EAF for production of liquid steel using Heuristic method. Process modeling of the Steel refining operation was performed. The results from the material balance and Energy balance shows 13.38% reduction in the charge materials and 7.38% reduction in the energy required for the furnace steel refining process for a furnace rated for production of 30 tons of liquid steel.
