Boiler Simulation—Simulating the Water and Steam Flow

  • H. Walter
  • K. Ponweiser


In boiler construction—depending on the fuel used—we distinguish between “conventional” systems (those that use fossil fuels like oil, gas, or coal) and nuclear plants in which nuclear fuels such as235U are used. The following summary of boiler systems, however, only addresses fossil fuel-fired plants. A brief overview on the main features of reactor theory and nuclear fission, as well as on the construction of nuclear reactors is given in Thomas (1975), Ziegler (1983), Ziegler (1984), Ziegler (1985), Strauß (1992), Weston (2007), Kok (2009), Todreas and Kazimi (2012), or Oka (2014).
