3D-Modelling of the Radiative Heat Transfer in Rotary Kilns with a Present Bed Material
Conference contribution, 2018

This work presents a 3D-model of the radiative heat transfer in cylindrical furnaces with a present bed material. Experimental data gathered in a down-scaled version of a rotary kiln has been used as input data to the model analysis. In future work, the model is to be used to study full-scale rotary kilns used in different industries such as the iron ore industry, heating and sintering iron ore pellets.
