CFD in Biomass Combustion
The primary objective is to present state-of-the-art models in the area of solid fuel combustion, with special focus on biomass fuels, and give practical examples of their application. The use of CFD, as a tool to transfer knowledge from basic research to end-users in industry, will be the overall theme.

Type of Event: Course, International

The course topics will be presented by international experts from academia and industry and consists of two parts. The first focuses on fundamental models and mechanistic descriptions including:
  • Non-spherical, non-isothermal particle motion and reactions

  • Gas phase reactions and emissions

  • Formation of deposits on heating surfaces

The second part focuses on industrial applications and validation of models including:
  • Grate-firing of biomass and waste

  • Suspension firing of biomass and cofiring of biomass with other fuels

  • Validation of full-scale CFD simulations
