Enhancement of Decorative Flames and Gas Flow in Fireplace Design

Wei-Long Chen and Fang-Lin Chao
Abstract—This fireplace design is comprised of a gas furnace, a transparent barrier assembly, and a separator. The separator assembly is placed in the furnace structure, and an air chamber partitioned by a barrier corresponds to a combustion chamber. A space is formed between the outlet passage and the transparent glass. This breather chamber passage is connected to the combustion chamber, and functions as a cooling air channel for guiding air through the semi-enclosed space, which improves the temperature uniformity in the combustor. Ambient air is isolated from the house to ensure the safety of the fireplace. Guided airflow redirects a portion of high-temperature air. Downward heat circulation allows the accumulation of heat and enhances the efficiency of energy use.

Index Terms—Decorative flames, fireplace, gas flow, product design.
