CFD Simulations as Efficient Tool for the Development and Optimisation of Small-Scale Biomass Furnaces and Stoves

R. Scharler, C. Benesch, K. Schulze & I. Obernberger
The application of CFD simulations is gaining increasing importance for the development of furnaces and boilers. Despite the high complexity of the underlying processes, BIOS has developed a CFD model for biomass grate furnaces and successfully applied it for the development and optimisation of numerous plants of all scales. In this work, selected results from the simulation of continuously operated furnaces, wood log fired stoves and boilers, as well as results from CFD simulations of...
