Abstract

More strong and quality clay bricks are obtained if and only if bricks are fired with uniform optimum temperature during clay brick firing process in the clay brick kiln. To insure this transient temperature of fluegas and brick are analyzed using CFD simulation during clay brick firing in the clay brick kiln. In the simulation, 3-D geometrical model of fluegas and clay brick with inlet boundary of velocity and wall condition used respectively. Contour and vector of total temperature of brick and fluegas at different flow time is presented. In addition, temperature variation of selected brick and fluegas at different flow time is analyzed.
