Simulation of Coal Combustion Process in Small Boiler


Radovan Nosek , Jozef Jandacka, Andrzej Szlek

The aim of the work is to develop a method of simple characterization of solid fuels combustion in fixed bed, which would be useful for CFD modelling. In this work, the measurements were performed in a test rig, where a combustion front propagates against the airflow. Concentrations of flue gas species were registered at the exit of a fixed bed reactor and the temperature of burning coal was measured in selected points of the reactor as functions of time. Furthermore, developed functions were applied for defining the boundary conditions at the interface between the fixed bed and gas phase using FLUENT. The simulations of a domestic boiler have been done and the relative effects of different factors in CFD code were evaluated by sensitivity analysis
