A numerical investigation was performed on an industrial oven using a
Computational Fluid Dynamics technique. The objective of this project was to
investigate the temperature distribution and fluid flow inside an industrial oven.
Results obtained from the numerical investigation proved that the industrial
oven at Orford Refrigeration was predominantly uniform in temperature. From
the results collected, the problem areas inside the industrial oven have be
identified as cold spots, air flow through the perforations and circulation zones.
