Temperature and Flow Field Analysis

  

A manufacturer of advanced materials wanted to know if installing fans in a processing furnace would alleviate temperature gradients in their product. 2D simulations were used to determine the temperature and flow field in the furnace. Based on the results of simulation, it was concluded that the maximum temperature non-uniformity over the product was around 10° C, primarily caused by a cold spot at the center of the product. Further analysis showed that the addition of louvers which would adjust the flow of hot gas from the fans could be used to reduce/eliminate the cold spot.
