CFD Analysis of Heat Transfer From Flares

A way to obtain conservative estimates for the temperatures at the support structures of a flare system

Tushar Bhad, Sumanta Sarkar and Arvind Kaushik Hydrocarbon IC, Larsen & Toubro Ltd.

A gas flare is an elevated vertical conveyance found accompanying oil wells, gas wells, drilling rigs, petroleum refineries, chemical plants, natural gas plants and so on. Although modern flare systems are specifically designed to reduce the thermal radiation, pollution and acoustic impact of a flare, a considerable amount of radiation is nevertheless emitted by an operational flare as a result of burning large quantities of combustible gases. The emitted radiation increases the temperature of the flare support structure and nearby structures. Therefore, it is essential to correctly estimate heat transfer from the flares to the structures when designing structures, selecting their materials of construction (MoC), selecting protective paints and so on....
