The article presents a finite element model for simulating a gas-fired IR radiation system. Simulation of gaseous combustion and discrete ordinates radiation model were used to solve a number of heat-Transfer problems in ventilated rooms with radiant heating. We used Ansys Multiphysics software and Fluent CFD solver for implementing finite element analysis. To solve differential equations of heating and gas dynamics, the following boundary conditions were considered. Dry methane was used as the fuel and air with 21% of oxygen, as oxidizer. Fuel consumption was 0.5 m3/hour; the gas pressure before the nozzle was 1270 Pa. The air-fuel ratio was 9.996.
