Abstract

Numerical simulations of gas-solid flows, heat transfer and gas-particle combustion have been conducted for a three-dimensional, W-shaped boiler furnace. The gas-particle flow, distributions of temperature and concentrations of gaseous constituents, distributions of the rates of heat release, burnout rates of coal particles, and formations of volatiles and CO have been predicted.
