Influence of furnace cross section on the flow and velocity distribution in tangential firing furnace

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

This paper presents an investigation on the influence of different furnace cross sectional configurations on the flow and velocity distribution in a small-scale tangential firing furnace. The flow and combustion of natural gas in three furnaces of different cross section are simulated numerically using CFD. The results show that velocity distribution is non-uniform along the width and depth of the furnace in rectangular furnace while square cross section gives uniform distribution. The effect of furnace cross section on the tangential velocity is more obvious when the length difference of the width and depth of the furnace is larger. The axial velocity is found to be highly influenced by the furnace cross section.
