Thermo-Electric Problem in the Søderberg Electrode

Chapman, S.J. and Dellar, P. and Fitt, A.D. and Herraiz, L. and Howison, S.D. and King, J. and Lacey, A.A. and Nikolopoulos, C. and Parrott, K. and Please, C.P. (1997) Thermo-Electric Problem in the Søderberg Electrode. [Study Group Report]



Current is supplied to a Søderberg electrode by copper clamps that are attached to the steel casing around the electrode. From this casing steel fins run into the paste to enhance current transport, creating a non-uniform distribution of current and temperature within the paste.

The aim for the Study Group is to determine whether a homogenisation approach can be used to reduce the problem to one with axial symmetry.
