To promote the full combustion efficiency of a body cremation furnace during cremation, the temperature and velocity of cremation furnace in the process of body combustion are simulated by finite element model. Firstly, the simplified finite element analysis model of cremation furnace and its finite element software is introduced in this study, and then the flow model, heat transfer model, and combustion model needed in the heat transfer process are described. According to the requirements of the finite element model, the mesh generation process of the cremation furnace model and the numerical solution method are presented. Finally, the model used in this study is verified by the test and simulation results. The results show that the method is reliable. Besides, the design parameters of the temperature part and the combustion speed part of the furnace under six different working conditions are analyzed to further optimize the structure of the furnace. The results of this study provide a good theoretical basis for cremation equipment and promote the development of China’s cremation industry.
