furnace design using CFX
Dear all,

I try to design a batch furnace with a flat flame burner mounting on the roof.
The dimension of the furnace is to be determined.
The goal is to achieve 1500 degree Celsius on the floor while the vertical velocity near the floor is small.

Is it appropriate to use ANSYS CFX as a tool for DESIGNING a furnace from scratch?
Is there any combustion tutorial of CFX or fluent available?

Thank you

CFX can do this. I am not sure CFX is the best way to design a furnace but you can do it that way if you wish.

There are combustion tutorials provided with CFX. But if all you want is the temeprature at the bottom you probably do not need a combustion model and heat sources will do fine.
