Abstract
A description is given of the numerical calculation of the complex and coupled processes of flow, heat and mass transfer, and combustion in three-dimensional furnaces. Finite-difference methods are used to discretize and solve the basic equations of flow, heat and mass transfer. Combustion is treated as a single step reaction with finite reaction rate. The reaction rate is modelled according to the eddy-dissipation concept by B. F. Magnussen and B. H. Hjertager. Turbulence is modelled by a two-equation model which solves for the turbulence kinetic energy and its rate of dissipation. The effective turbulent viscosity is related to these two quantities. Radiation is modelled by the flux model proposed by A. G. DeMarco and F. C. Lockwood.
