This week, the IFRF Handbook publishes its first Combustion File relating to the use of Fuzzy Logic to simulate combustion systems.

This combustion file has been authored by C.K. Tan, and refereed by Professor Steve Wilcox, both of the  University of Glamorgan, Wales. It describes the basis of the Fuzzy Logic approach to process simulation and decision making, and illustrates its application in combustion with an example based on a  grate fired boiler. This Combustion File forms part of a cluster of Combustion Files relating to Advanced Process Simulation developed under the guidance of Handbook Sub-Editor Professor John Ward, also of Glamorgan University.

IFRF Members may read or download these Combustion Files at http://www.handbook.ifrf.net, by selecting ‘New Combustion Files’ after accepting the disclaimer screen. Other Combustion Files on related themes, many of which are also open to non-IFRF members,  may be found by using the links built into the CFs, or by searching the Handbook with the  keywords like ‘model’  or ‘control’.
