    Abstract: Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has been used to study the devolatilization and combustion of large particles of shredded scrap tire “rubber” and pulverized pine wood “biomass” in a rotary cement kilns. The CFD model constitutes of modeling the hydrodynamics within the rotary kiln, heat transfer, devolatilization and co-combustion of rubber and ... Show More
