Inclusion Capture Probability Prediction Model for Bubble Floatation in Turbulent Steel Flow

The turbulent flow around bubbles is simulated for the fixed turbulent kinetic energy. Inclusion motion through the flow field is studied by considering the stochastic effect of turbulence to calculate the capture probability of inclusions with different sizes to a fixed-size individual bubble according to the redefinition. Using the cubic spline interpolation, the capture probability is predicted as functions of the bubble size, inclusion size and turbulent kinetic energy.
