Some previous studies have shown that coke oven wall pressure results from the combination of several antagonist phenomena: swelling of plastic layer, coke and semi-coke contraction, compressibility of unreacted coal. The study of the different carbonization phases is very difficult in commercial coke ovens. Therefore some laboratory tests simulating the behaviour of coal during coking, such as sole heated oven, have been used in conjunction with a pilot movable wall oven, in order to obtain information on plastic layer swelling and permeability and on direction of tar migration.
