Transient CFD Simulation of Wood Log Stoves with Heat Storage Devices

C. Benesch, M. Blank, R. Scharler, M. Kössl & I. Obernberger
Wood log fired stoves increasingly constitute effective heating systems due to new innovative concepts including heat storage devices. These devices accumulate a certain fraction of the heat released in a special storage medium for a certain period of time and release it after opening of discharge channels. The combustion of wood logs in small­scale stoves itself is a highly transient and complex process and the transient character of the operation of wood log stoves becomes...
