The work is devoted to numerical modeling of pulverized coal combustion processes in the vortex furnace, which is a prospective design of a boiler unit for thermal power plants. Novel modification of this furnace design characterized by additional tangential-injection nozzle located at the upper part of the vortex combustion chamber is studied. Numerical results for the case of Siberian brown coal combustion in this vortex furnace with dual upper-port loading are presented, including 3-D aerodynamic structure, the fields of temperature, radiated heat fluxes, species and dispersed phase concentrations, as well as the integral heat engineering and ecological parameters.
