Abstract This paper summarizes recent physical flow modeling carried out at Combustion Engineering's Kreisinger Development Laboratory. Included Is a review of current Instrumentation, experimental facilities, and techniques for the isothermal modeling of full scale industrial furnaces. Equipment used for flow visualization, three dimensional velocity mapping, and the simulation of fuel/air mixing are discussed. A description of a new tangential-fired furnace flow model is also given. This large-scale furnace model is surrounded by an instrument traversing system which allows the placement of various instrument packages around and within the model envelope. The instruments that have been used in this facility Include a multi-hole p1tot tube, a laser absorption spectrophotometer, and a two-axis laser doppler anemometer. Experimental information from this model has been used to predict such important furnace parameters as slagging potential, fuel-air mixing, and fuel burnout. Other recent physical modeling experiments are discussed and include the development of a high turndown coal burner assembly, and overall furnace modeling studies for a recovery and a wood-fired boiler.
