A 2-D sinter cooling model is built to simulate the hot iron ore sinter cooling process in a sinter cooler. In this model the convection heat transfer is applied for the heat transfer between the sinter particle skin and the cooling air flow. Thermal conduction is used for the heat conduction within the sinter particles, and fluid dynamics is applied tothe cooling gas distributions. This model will be able to analyze the effects of sinter particle size, size distribution, hot sinter initial temperature, initial temperature distribution, sinter cooler size, cooler configuration and cooling air flow rate as well as cooling air temperature on the sinter cooling process. In this paper the 2-D sinter cooling model is presented along with certain parametric study examples.
