Research on the Flow Character of Regenerative Heating Furnace Affected by the Switching Model
On the basis of wholly analyzing the mechanism of the heat transfer in the 1880 regenerative furnace, the physical and mathematical 3-D model was set up to describe the heat transfer and combustion in the furnace, and the CFD software was used to simulate the whole combusting process in detail. From this, the law of the flow affected by four classical switching modes was studied in emphasis. The conclusions in the study were helpful to the reasonably design and optimization controlling of such furnaces.
