Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation of a Ceramic Furnace Burner - Capacity of Turbulent and Radiation Models
  Abstract

We intend in this work to model an industrial burner replica of the ceramic tunnel furnace of the Ceramics Modern Society (SOMOCER, TUNISIA). This study aims to evaluate the ability of turbulence and radiation models to predict the dynamics and heat transfer fields. The study is conducted by means of numerical simulations in presence of a reactive flow using the commercial code FLUENT. The 3D Navier-Stokes equations and four species transport equations are solved with the eddy-dissipation (ED) combustion model. We use three turbulence models (k- standard, k- RNG, and RSM) and two radiation models (DTRM and DO). The obtained results demonstrate that the k- standard turbulence model is unable to predict the flow characteristics whereas; the k- RNG and RSM models give a satisfying agreement with the experiments. Suitable results are provided by the DTRM radiation model; whereas, those given by the DO model can be improved.
