Construction and use of mathematical models of tunnel furnaces

  • 17 Accesses


The principles and an algorithm for programming of a mathematical model of a tunnel furnace are presented. A method for taking into account the effect of the filterability of the batch on heat exchange with the gas flow is suggested. The model may be used for improving the process in existing installations and for designing new tunnel furnaces.
