Estimation of the Heat Flux Through Furnace Side Walls Protected with Water Cooled Cooling Devices
A three dimensional numerical heat transfer model has been developed to estimate the heat flux trough furnace side walls protected with water cooled cooling fingers. The model was set up by means of the finite element method. Materials with different thermal conductivity were modelled and the results obtained with the mathematical model were compared with experimental data. In every case, it was found excellent agreement between the experimental data and the model computations.
