A new modular process modelling tool has been developed to support the design and operation of metallurgical processes. For this purpose, a software tool has been developed and a modelling concept was formulated for the calculation of complex non-equilibrium phenomena. To test both the basic approach and the software tool, the modelling and simulation of a LD converter process was undertaken. The validation of the simulation model shows good agreement of reported and calculated values for species concentration and temperature development in time.
