Uneven thermal stresses occurring in the walls of the furnace chamber in high power boilers are the reason for the occurrence of significant thermal stresses. The occurrence of excessive stress leads to serious damage to the waterwall tubes, which result in the necessity of more frequent repairs of the boiler. Therefore, finding a way to reduce stress values is one of the key challenges in improving productivity and increase the service life of boilers.
In this paper will be presented the review of the literature concerning the problem of uneven temperature distribution on the surface of the combustion chamber walls. There will also be presented studies that discuss the methods of modifying the furnace chamber to reduce the values of the stresses occurring in it.
