Abstract

Combusting flow simulations in an oil furnace (0.1 MW) were carried out in order to investigate droplet behavior and the flame-holding mechanism. Measurements made by a phase Doppler anemometer were also examined to elucidate the followability characteristics in recirculation flow. The results show that a droplet under 30 microns can follow the flow but a droplet over 50 microns penetrates. The use of connective flux of O2 and CO2 both in the flame and the entire furnace was examined and the results demonstrated that it was very useful to show the self-recirculating flow in furnaces.
