During my Ph.D. degree, I develop a solid background in heat transfers phenomenons involved in the coke/deposit formation in industrial process pipes of a refinery furnace.
With a collaboration with TOTAL group, a strategy has been deployed to understand coke formation.
Different in-house CERFACS codes were used and enhanced to take advantage of the specificity of this problem. Efforts have been made on the resolution of radiative field when a simple correlation is used for convection. A coupling between irradiated surface and pipes subjected to coke deposit have and heat transfer through the pipe, has been built to couple them efficiently in huge parallel architecture (up to 4000 CPUs for the real/complex configuration).
