Project overview

The project is divided into 5 subprojects (SP), each subproject is itself divided into several work packages (WP).

  • Fundamental modelling & model development - SP1
  • Wood stove CFD simulations and verification - SP2
  • Heat distribution modelling in the building/room - SP3
  • Education and training - SP4
  • Technology monitoring and dissemination - SP5

Fundamental modelling & model development - SP1
The major objective of SP1 is to develop improved sub models to be included in the CFD simulations in SP2.

Wood stove CFD simulations and verification - SP2
The major objectives of SP2 are to develop a numerical tool that is suitable to study concept improvements for wood stoves and to recommend new improved concepts with respect to high energy efficiency and low emissions based on simulation results.

Heat distribution modelling in the building/room - SP3
The major objectives of SP3 are to develop improved transient heat distribution models – giving reliable prediction of the effect of various heat transfer concepts in buildings and providing design guidelines for optimum wood stoves for tomorrows (energy efficient) buildings.

Education and training - SP4
The major objective of SP4 is to strengthen the education within this field through MSc and PhD students. The objective is also to increase the competence level in the industry. The long-term goal is competence building and strengthening of the education within combustion of wood in wood stoves and fireplaces.

Technology monitoring and dissemination - SP5
The major objectives of SP5 are to monitor the latest research and technological developments and to disseminate research results.
