Summary

As a result of recent thermomechanical investigative studies on iron and steelmaking ladles, several observations were made on refractory lining behavior unique to cylindrical refractory-lined vessels. The investigations were directed to brick/mortar joint-type linings subjected to transient temperatures and the resultant expansion loads. Observations were made on both the structural behavior of the refractory linings and on a failure mechanism. These observations are identified to assist investigators in the interpretation of analytical and field study data, and to assist in the design of refractory lining systems.
