A waste wood burning boiler with 200kW thermal power is investigated by experiments and numerically. Temperature measurements are performed in the furnace and in the heat exchanger sectionsin the downstream. Exit exhaust gas composition is also measured. Flow, heat transfer and combustion in the furnace, and forced convection on the water side are numerically analyzed. The water side calculations are used to obtain boundary conditions for the furnace by heat transfer coefficients. For validating the adopted mathematical/numerical formulation, the predictions are compared with measurements.A satisfactory agreement between the predictions and measurements is observed, confirming the validity of the applied computational procedures.
