Abstract
We report the use of computer techniques for modeling and visualization of the laser monitoring of the inner surface of an operating Bessemer converter. The purpose of the study was to estimate the accuracy of the laser measurement technique, to determine the geometrical parameters necessary, and to establish the requirements to the accuracy of the scanning part of a laser meter when the pulse duration, beam divergence and defects size are pre-set. The following basic conclusions can be drawn: firstly, it is possible to use a laser meter as a device for monitoring the casing thickness based on the use of a pulsed solid-state laser; secondly, the process of non-uniform wear can be handled by means of additional measurements with off-axis sounding geometry; thirdly, the numerical experiment demonstrates that, based on the accuracy achieved of determining the casing thickness, the operating life-time of the converter can be extended.
