Abstract: A multilayer feed-forward back-propagation learning algorithm was employed as an artificial neural network (ANN) tool to create a model to predict the corrosion of MgO-C ladle refractory bricks based on laboratory slag corrosion test data. The corrosion process occurred by immersion of the rectangular refractory specimens in molten slag-steel bath. An ANN model to predict the amount of corrosion was created by using the training data. The model was also tested with experimentally measured data and relatively low error levels were achieved. This model was then used to predict the response of the slag-corrosion system to different values of the factors affecting the corrosion of bricks at high temperatures. Exposure time, exposure temperature of slag-brick contact and CaO/SiO2 ratio of the slag were the factors used for modelling. Model results provided the potential for selection of the best conditions for avoiding the factor combinations that may accelerate corrosion.
