Clinker formation in coal-®red rotary cement kilns under realistic operation conditions has been modelled with a commercial axisymmetric CFD code for the gaseous phase including a Monte Carlo method for radiation, a ®nitevolume code for the energy equation in the kiln walls, and a novel code for the species and energy conservation equations, including chemical reactions, for the clinker. An iterative procedure between the predictions for the temperature ®eld of the gaseous phase, the radiative… CONTINUE READING
