Theory and Calculation of Heat Transfer in Furnaces

Theory and Calculation of Heat Transfer in Furnaces covers the connection between heat transfer and energy exchange,the characteristics of efficient and clean combustion, as well as the effects of ash deposition and slagging on heat transfer for all the typical boilers and most fuels.
Theory and Calculation of Heat Transfer in Furnaces enables the newcomer to practise how to compute the heat transfer of a furnace while designing a new boilier and the engineer can use the book as a reference. Additionally, there are two demonstrations of boiler design calculation at the end of this book, and readers will benefit from coverage of basic radiation theory and industry design methods.

Audience

Senior undergraduates and graduates of energy engineering, power engineering, for the courses of boiler design, combustion engineering, thermal engineering, furnace and heating device design. Engineers who design, manufacture, and operate boilers, heating devices, thermal power plants
