Achieving Operational Efficiency in High Temperature Processes

High temperature processes involving combustion and reacting flows are commonly encountered in the glass, steel, cement, metallurgy, refining and petro/chemical industries. Achieving these goals requires innovating current designs of processes and equipment such as:

  • Gas and coal burners
  • Glass and steel treatment furnaces
  • Process and crude heaters
  • Reformers
  • Dryers and kilns, etc.

Engineers increasingly rely on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and reaction kinetic simulations of combustion processes to use methodical approaches in designing such systems. The successful use of simulation lowers the cost of iterating between trials and prototypes.

Recent advances in the CAD maneuverability, reaction modeling approaches and optimization algorithms allow for rigorous design space exploration. In this On-Demand webinar, we look at some examples of how CFD simulation and design space exploration are used to achieve business benefits through technical problem solving and innovation. A technical expert will demonstrate the process of setting up such a model.
