A viscosity model based on a new definition of basicity has been proposed for blast furnace type slags. Conceptually, this definition of basicity is close to Bell's definition of basicity as used for modelling of sulphide capacity of blast furnace type slags. The model developed in the present work is applicable for wide range of alumina, magnesia and titania containing blast furnace slags, while most of the models available in the literature are mainly applicable for a limited range of slag composition. Viscosity estimation by this model is close to the experimental value for all types of blast furnace slags. This model is based on the chemical composition of slag and is applicable for slags above liquidus temperature.
