Conjugate Heat Transfer Analysis of an Ethylene Furnace

Conjugate heat transfer analysis for an ethylene furnace was carried out based on numerical simulation. Detailed distributions of velocity vectors, chemical species, and temperature inside the furnace are presented and discussed. Von Mises stress and heat flux at the tube surface were also evaluated to elucidate mechanisms regarding failure of the tube. Maximum stress was found at the upstream elbow of the tube, which did not coincide with the location of maximum heat flux. This implies that thermal stress at a steady state would not be a dominant component of the stress. Degradation of the material, as well as the system arrangement, should be considered in order to accurately predict the lifetime of the tube material in the furnace.
