Increasing the speed of CFD procedure for minimization the nitrogen oxide polution from the premixed atmospheric gas burner

This article presents innovative method for increasing the speed of procedure which includes complex CFD calculations for finding the distance between flame openings of atmospheric gas burner that lead to minimal NO pollution. The method is based on standard features included in commercial CFD software and shortens computer working time roughly seven times in this particular case.
