The effect of the combustion chamber’s configuration on the characteristics of flow and combustion parameters has been numerically investigated for a multi injecting, LPG, Flameless Oxy-fuel burner in a real-size soaking pit furnace, using CFD simulation. The simulation has been performed on two different furnace configurations, namely; small and large chambers of 15 m3 and 27 m3, with a height to width ratios of 1.49 and 2.02 respectively and with corresponding burner capacities of 560 kW and 900 kW. A major experimental trial has been performed in order to validate the results and reasonable consistency has been observed. The predicted results, with particular focus on the temperature distribution and heat transfer rate of two cases have been studied in detail.
