Circulating fluidized bed combustion using the fluent software is analyzed. The increase in application of fluidized bed combustion device throughout the world shows that more consideration is given to improve the design and reduce emissions of these. Due to excellent thermal and mixing properties, fluidized beds are generally preferred over the fixed bed combustors. Various industrial boilers play an important role to improve the power generation cycle such as CFBC (circulating fluidized bed combustion), AFBC (atmospheric fluidized bed combustion boiler), co-boiler etc. It is intended to comprehensively give an account of temperature, pressure, in CFBC boiler with due effect of flue gas flow during operation on refractory by using latest technology of cad (computer aided design). The results obtained are helpful to understand temperature, pressure of flue gasses and usage of flue gas to increase thermal efficiency.
