Abstract

Recent results from CFD modelling of a waste gas boiler (WGB) to predict Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emissions are presented. A verification / validation discussion is highlighted comparing the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling with field measurements of NOx and flame characteristics. Challenges associated with the accurate prediction of NOx emissions are discussed along with the ability of CFD to accurately model emissions from an industrial scale WGB.
