With the increasing demand for lower emissions and innovative combustion technologies, it is necessary to have a reaction mechanisms that is accurate as well as computationally affordable for geometry and process optimization using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The objective of this work is to explore the applicability of several reaction mechanisms in predicting NOx emissions from various combustion systems. This work focuses on the selection of suitable mechanisms from literature (see Table 1) in a full scale 3D model for the prediction of NOX especially for furnaces with low oxygen concentration in the fuel bed and enhanced reduction zones.
