Theory and calculation of heat transfer in furnaces book cover

Theory and calculation of heat transfer in furnaces

In boiler furnaces, four physical and chemical processes take place simultaneously: combustion, flow, heat transfer, and mass transfer. Heat transfer in the furnace is related to the energy exchange, as well as to the characteristics of efficiency and cleaning of combustion. Theory and Calculation of Heat Transfer in Furnaces covers all the typical boilers with most fuels, as well as the effects of ash deposition and slagging on heat transfer. 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.


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 device, thermal power plant
