3-D Numerical Research on Combusting in the Whole Regenerative Heating Furnace


Article Preview

On the basis of wholly analyzing the mechanism of the heat transfer in the regenerative heating furnace,the physical and mathematical 3-d model was set up to describe the heat transfer and combustion in the furnace. Then the CFD software was used to simulate the combusting process of the whole furnace. At last, the flow and the temperature profile in the whole furnace were deeply studied and the flow character and the temperature distribution law in the furnace were revealed in detail. The conclusions here were helpful to the reasonable design and optimization controlling of such furnaces.
