Mathematical modeling of gas dynamics and heat exchange in rotating furnace

  • V. A. Arutyunov

This paper describes a mathematical model of the turbulent diffusion flame and complex heat transfer in a rotating furnace. A numerical study is made of the dependence of flame configuration on the air delivery factor. The influence on flame length of the momentum flux density ratio for the oxidizing agent and fuel gas is investigated. The relationship between flame length and the proportion of the fuel gas delivered through the annular passage of an adjustable two-passage burner is established. The temperature distributions over the length of the furnace are calculated for various flame configurations.
