Title: Final Scientific Report

Abstract

Efficient and accurate numerical model is developed for the turbulent melt flows and electromagnetic instabilities in the Hall-Héroult aluminum reduction, the dominant method of primary aluminum production. The model is tested in comparison with experimental measurements and three-dimensional computations and applied to study fundamental properties of flows and instabilities in reduction cells. The model is developed into a computational tool suitable for real-time simulations of the non-stationary cell behavior and for application in the design of new cells and retrofitting of existing lines.
