A three-dimensional mathematical model has been developed for the simulation of flow, temperature and concentration fields in the radiation section of industrial scale steam cracking units. The model takes into account turbulence–chemistry interactions through the Eddy Dissipation Concept (EDC) model and makes use of Detailed Reaction Kinetics (DRK), which allows the detailed investigation of the flame structure. Furthermore, simulation results obtained with the EDC-DRK model are compared with… CONTINUE READING
