A numerical simulation investigation into the furnace and horizontal chimney process in a utility boiler is presented. The work is based on the commercial software FLUENT 6.1. Flow, chemistry, energy, conservation and radiation models are combined with the FLUNENT solver to simulate the process inside the furnace. Radiation and convection models are considered in the horizontal heater. The reheater is processed as a limited thickness heater and the convective heat transfer is considered in this numerical simulation. The temperature and velocity fields are calculated to unveil the process inside and outside the furnace. The result shows that the fouling in reheater is formed because of the temperature and velocity field in the flue gas passage. A limited test is done to validate the numerical simulation.
