Grant Writing and Grant Search for Minnesota Taconite Operations, State and Federal Department of Energy (DOE)
To provide funding to NRRI/CMRL Director and staff engineers to evaluate State and Federal DOE grant opportunities, and to work with Minnesota taconite operations to write and submit grants for energy projects in taconite.
Pellet Induration Modeling - Revised Pellet Drying Model
To develop an improved pellet drying model for incorporation into Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) pellet induration furnaces. The current drying model that was developed under the ArcelorMittal Straight Grate program for Iron Ore Cooperative Research has proven difficult to converge. Our goal is to develop a computationally stable drying model, and to complete the CFD Straight Grate Modeling effort.
