This paper describes a mathematical model for determining the total heat transfer in combustion chambers of steam generators. The model is based on the energy balance of radiation in a spherical combustion chamber which is divided into a combustion zone and gaseous zone. The model was tested on a Hewlett-Packard Type 9815 A computer with 2008 program memories. Calculations were made for a number of steam generator combustion chambers of different furnace loads for which all important factors were established. The model allows a didactic analysis of factors influencing the process of combustion and heat transfer.
