A mathematical model is developed to simulate the thermal characteristics of energy recovery incinerators. This model takes descriptions of the fuel and of the incinerator as inputs then predicts system temperatures, steam generation rate, and energy recovery efficiency. There are options to include primary or secondary water-walls, a water/firetube boiler, or combinations of these heat exchangers. Both starved and excess air operation are considered.
