H2 Combustion Presented at SHTC 2023

August 14, 2023

Senior Research Engineer, Nicholas Walla presented at the Summer Heat Transfer Conference 2023 held in Washington DC, on July 10-12, 2023.

Nick presented two papers during two separate sessions of the conference:

  • “Hydrogen-Fueled Regenerative Burners in a Reheating Furnace” was presented during the Applications of Computational Heat Transfer II session. This paper details the process of modifying burner configuration for steel reheating furnace to improve performance of hydrogen-fueled burners and prevent negative effects such as hazardous emissions.
  • “Spray Overlap and Heat Transfer Coefficient Uniformity in the Continuous Casting” was presented during the Spray Cooling session. This paper explores different spray configurations in secondary cooling to improve the cooling rate of cast steel while avoiding uneven heating that can cause dangerous failure.

The Summer Heat Transfer Conference brings together international researchers and engineers focusing on heat and mass transfer in a variety of applications. It includes technical paper sessions, plenary lectures, committee meetings and social events. The conference is hosted by ASME, which includes more than 140,000 members in 151 countries.
