A CFD-based tool for the analysis of combustion and emissions in batch-fired wood log combustion is introduced. It consists of submodels for drying and pyrolysis of a wood log, for combustion of volatilised fuel and char, for radiative heat transfer, and for NO formation implemented in a commercial CFD-programme (Fluent) for turbulent flows. Comparing model predictions to experimental data in a test oven shows the applicability of the different submodels and combination of them.
