Digital twins for cities, getting closer and closer. The wind at the ‘Plaza del Pilar’

Digital twins for cities emerge as tools to assist urban planning of cities. The digital twin of a city is generally made up of a three-dimensional model, sensors located [...]

Digital twin for a biomass boiler (DT4Biomass Project)

The DT4Biomass project received a grant from the European Union within the call H2020-INNOSUP-2018-2019 (To better support innovation in SMEs). Thanks to this grant, we hired an expert person [...]

The transition to sustainable fuel

The climate targets set for 2030 and 2050 will progressively compel to use sustainable fuels in combustion facilities for the generation of steam, electricity or other uses. Solid biomass, [...]

Flue gas flow in a biomass boiler

Computational Fluid Dynamics for biomass boilers The Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a very useful tool to study relevant aspects in the design of a biomass boiler such as [...]

The challenge of simulating combustion and heat transfer in a boiler: a chamber and 10000 pipes

The challenge of simulating a boiler The application of CFD to boilers has limited most of the times to the furnace (the area where the combustion takes place), not [...]

Optimizing flue-gas desulfurization plants

Description of the desulphurization process nablaDot has participated in projects destined to improve the efficiency of sulfur dioxide (SO2) capture in flue-gas desulfurization plants in thermal power stations. This [...]

Operation optimization in an arch-fired boiler

The arch-fired boiler studied in this project suffered from a high material fatigue in certain parts due to the high temperatures achieved by the combustion gases, which in turn [...]

Nitrogen oxide (NOx) emission reduction in a front-wall-fired coal boiler

This project had as a main objective the reduction, by means of primary measures (changes in the operation) or minor modifications, of the NOx emission in a front-wall-fired coal [...]
