In the article, the differential method of thermal calculation of a furnace is used to determine the aerodynamic and thermal characteristics in the chambers of radiation of tube furnaces with wall burners of two types located on several tiers. In the methane steam reforming furnace, the acoustic burners of the near-wall flame gas fuel are arranged in three tiers on the side walls of the radiation chamber. In the primary reforming furnace for the production of ammonium nitrate, wall-mounted burners are located on six tiers. The method implies joint numerical solution of 2D radiation transfer equations using the S2-approximation of the discrete ordinate method, of energy equations, flow equations, k-e turbulence model, and two stage modeling of gas fuel combustion. Is it given a brief description of the boundary conditions for differential equations and the method of their numerical solution. The results of the calculation of the temperature fields and the flow of combustion products in the radiation chamber of the furnace obtained with the help of a computer program that implements the described method are given.
