Abstract

In order to characterize a radiative conveter for high temperature air combustion furnace, fluid flow characteristics through a wire screen at low Reynolds number were investigated by numerical simulation. It was confirmed that flow resistance results agree with existing experimental data. Drag coefficient of three kinds of wire screen at porosity range : 0.3 < β < 1 and Reynolds number range : 1 < Re < 300 were obtained. Empirical formula of fluid resistance through a woven mesh was obtained.
