An evaluation of effects of operational parameters on NOx emissions through detailed chemical kinetics simulations
An evaluation of effects of fuel parameters and flue gas recirculation on NOx emissions through detailed chemical kinetics simulations
In this work the effects of fuel parameters and under grate flue gas recirculation (FGR) are investigated when applying staged air combustion of solid fuel for the purpose of NOx reduction. In addition to temperatures, residence times and primary and overall excess air ratio, the fuel-N content and ...
Transient CFD simulations of wood stoves with varying heat storage capacity
In the present work, transient CFD simulations of full wood log combustion cycles have been performed to study the time dependent behavior in cast iron and soapstone wood stoves. A model for the gas release is developed and implemented. The gas release model takes into account that the fuel gas rele...
