These electrodes are made of paste which flows under increasing temperature. The paste is charged by adding paste briquettes on top of the electrode which soften and flow to form a dense fluid which is baked to form the solid electrode. When producing electrodes rapidly the softening/flow process can be incomplete due to trapped air leading to breakages.

The objective of the Study Group is a mathematical analysis of this process which will allow a transfer of laboratory measurements to conditions for real electrodes.A.D. FittP.D.

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.S.J. ChapmanP. DellarA.D. FittL. HerraizS.D. HowisonJ. KingA.A. LaceyC. NikolopoulosK. ParrottC.P. Please
