Abstract:

This report is an effort to collect under one cover the existing theory of three continuous zone refining systems the zone-void system, the zone-transport system and the matter transport system. The steady-state equations which describe these systems are derived using consistent terminology and under boundary conditions which account for the density change due to melting. The newly developed nondimensional steady-state equations are also derived and the results of an extensive computer study based on these equations are presented in graphical form.
