Models for both types of furnaces are based on material balances with the fundamental assumptions that the constituents of the furnace atmosphere are always in thermodynamic equilibrium, and the carbon potential at the surface of the work load is proportional to the difference between the carbon potential of the furnace atmosphere and the instantaneous surface carbon content of the work load.
