The virtual biomass grate furnace-an overall CFD model for biomass combustion plants

Publikation: Beitrag in einer FachzeitschriftKonferenzartikelForschungBegutachtung

Abstract

This paper presents the virtual biomass grate furnace, which comprises of comprehensive CFD models of all relevant processes for the simulation of biomass grate furnaces. The models consist of a 3D packed bed model, a gas phase combustion model for laminar to highly turbulent flows and a model to account for the influence of the flue gas streaks arising from the fuel bed in the freeboard. The simulation results of a 20 kW underfeed stoker furnace show that the overall CFD model is able to provide valuable insight on the processes occurring in the packed bed and freeboard and their interactions.
