Process-Simulation and Computational Fluid Dynamics for the Development of a novel Solid Biomass-fired Combustor

Engineering Steps:

  • Combustion calculation, mass- and energy balancing (Process simulation )
  • Design of the initial geometry (inner core, secondary zone...)
  • Evaluation of CFD-Simulation and re-design of the combustor

Process scheme with base specification data

Process simulation works:

  • Well-established inhouse-code (sequential-modular)
  • Simultaneous solution of mass-, species- and energy balances
  • Commercial Newton-Raphson Solver
  • Detailed modelling of temperature-dependent material properties
  • Applied for process investigation and sensitivity analysis
  • Starting point for Basic Engineering
