Three dimensional numerical cases to study the combustion occur in furnace working by gas fuel for a 200MW boiler capacity. The idea of this study has an important role in industry and various engineering applications such as steam power station to produce electricity. Finite volume method can be adopted to perform by the gaseous fuel in furnace with tangential fuel firing system efficiently . Hence, it is planning that this research can be achieve by using ANSYS Fluent ( CFD ) software tool . The non - premixed combustion model and probability density function (PDF) table are used to analyze the processes ,species transport model is applied for prediction of pure methane and air mixture combustion . Design Modeler ( DM ) of Fluent is used for drawing and designing all the parts such as walls, celling , bottom, outlet and wind boxes in four corners with three levels . Initially this work was solved to get acceptable simulation results of temperature and velocity distribution inside the furnace. Finally, the theoretical results of the simulation proved an agreement with the design results of the manufacturer, moreover this study aims to further understanding of combustion process hoping to enhance designing and manufacturing of boilers.
