A computational model of heat- and mass-transfer processes in a phosphorus recovery electrothermal reactor has been developed. An algorithm of the numerical method of finite elements has been proposed for the computer-aided simulation of heat- and mass-transfer processes in the reactor. A comparison of computational experiment results with experimental furnace inspection and physical modeling data demonstrate quite satisfactory agreement. The computer-aided calculation of related thermohydraulic fields has been performed for the entire reactor volume for the first time.
