1. Introduction

Heat transfer by radiation is the main type of heat transfer in torch heating furnaces, fire chambers of boilers, the combustion chambers (CC) of gas-turbine installations (GTI). Thermal flows falling on the heating surface from the flare formed during combustion of gas, oil, pulverized coal fuel by 92% - 98% consist of heat radiation flow and by 2% - 8% from convective flow [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]. Flame transmits 99% - 99.5% heat with radiation, 0.5% - 1% by convection [5].

Existing methods for calculating heat transfer such as zonal, numerical, Pl - approximation, Monte Carlo, Schuster-Schwarzschild, Eddington, Chandrasekhar, spherical harmonics and others use the Stefan-Boltzmann law of heat radiation from solids. However, the radiation from gas volumes of electric arcs and torches is not subject to the Stefan-Boltzmann law of radiation from solids and the calculation error is 70% - 90% or more.

In the twentieth century in articles, monographs, textbooks of Russian and foreign scientists, designers century, there was no data on the causes of uneven wear and low resistance of the lining of the walls, the arch of electric arc steel melting furnaces, uneven melting of the charge, the temperature of the metal around the perimeter due to the lack of the laws of heat radiation from gas volumes and the inability to accurately calculate the heat transfer. There were no results of the calculation of the distribution of the heat radiation fluxes from the torch along the height and perimeter of the furnaces, the burner device. There was no explanation for the unevenness of vaporization and deposits in the pipes. There were no data on the distribution of heat fluxes on all surfaces, faces and height of heated products in torch furnaces. There were no calculated data on the distribution of the heat radiation fluxes from the torch along the flame tube and the burner device of the combustion chambers.

The lack of accurate data of heat transfer calculations was compensated by the results of numerous, expensive, time-consuming, long-term experimental studies of heat transfer and technical modes of operation of electric arc steelmaking and torch furnaces, fire boxes, combustion chambers.

At the end of the 20th century, the laws of heat radiation from gas volumes, the laws of heat radiation from electric arcs of steel melting furnaces and torches of heating furnaces, fire boxes, combustion chambers of gas turbine power plants were discovered. The disclosed laws of heat radiation from gas volumes, as well as the laws of heat radiation from solids of Planck, Wien, Stefan-Boltzmann, belong among the fundamental laws of physics which have multidisciplinary and applicability in various fields of science and technology.

The discovery of the fundamental law of physics is an outstanding event in the history of mankind and takes place on average once in 50 - 80 years. Physics textbooks for schools and universities, which set out a little more than 30 laws discovered by humankind for three thousand years, since the third century BC from the law of Archimedes and to the last fundamental laws, postulates discovered by Bohr in 1913 are proof of this.

2. The Laws of Thermal Radiation of Gas Volumes

In 1996-2001, the author A.N. Makarov discovered the fundamental laws of physics, the laws of thermal radiation of gas volumes of flares (Figure 1), the laws of radiation of cylindrical gas volumes (Table 1) [5] [6] [7] [8]. To comply with centuries-old scientific traditions and copyright laws of thermal radiation of gas volumes of torches in a diploma for scientific discovery, articles, textbooks, monographs are similar to the laws of radiation of an absolute black body (ABB), the laws of Stefan-Boltzmann, Planck, Wien, are named after the author, their discovered by the laws of Makarov. Based on a scientific discovery, the author developed the theory and methods of calculating heat transfer [5] - [15] in

flare furnaces, furnaces of steam boilers, combustion chambers of gas turbine plants, gas turbine engines (GTE) of civil aviation.

In Table 1, the following notation is used: q is the flux density of thermal radiation incident from the cylindrical gas volume at the design site, kW/m^{2}; φ are the angular emission coefficients (radiation fraction) of the cylindrical gas volume at the design site; P is the radiation power of a cylindrical gas volume, kW; k is the absorption coefficient of the cylindrical gas volume; l is the average path length of the rays from all atoms of the cylindrical gas volume to the calculated site, m; F is the surface area of the calculation site, m^{2}; indices indicate the numbers of gas volumes from 1 to n.

With the discovery of the laws of thermal radiation of gas volumes, the extremely complex problem of calculating with the help of one formula for the emission of quadrillion torch atoms to any calculation site in furnaces, furnaces, and combustion chambers has been solved.

In 2014-16 the author of this article disclosed the laws of heat radiation from isothermal isochoric concentric spherical gas volumes, that the article presents. Radiating gas volumes of any complex form can be entirely filled by concentric spherical together with coaxial cylinder gas volumes and calculate heat radiation from gas volumes, furnace torches, fire boxes, combustion chambers on the heating surfaces with high accuracy.

Miscalculation in modeling heat radiation from gas volume in the form of parallelepiped by one cylindrical gas volume is 2.3%, 15 spherical gas volumes is 2.2%, 108 spherical gas volumes is 0.9%, 432 spherical gas volumes is 0.4%.

Thus, gas volume in the form of parallelepiped can be modeled by cylindrical gas volume, one-two hundred spherical gas volumes and obtain the results from calculations with high accuracy.

3. The Basics of the Developed Theory and Methodology for Calculating Heat Transfer in Electric Arc Furnaces, Flare Furnaces, and Combustion Chambers

The disclosed laws are multidisciplinary and are used in metallurgy, energy, and various industries. According to open laws, cylindrical gas volumes are inscribed in the gas volumes of torches (Figure 2(b)), the radiation of which in the calculations is modeled by the equivalent radiation of their cylindrical axis of symmetry (see law V, Table 1).

The main formulas of the calculation method for heat transfer in electric arc furnaces, flare furnaces, and combustion chambers are set out in Table 2.

In Table 2 the following conventions are used: q_{in} is the density of the heat flux incident on the i-th elementary area on the heating surface, q_{int} is the density of the heat flux incident on the i-th area from the torch, taking into account the

The author of the scientific discovery, A. Makarov developed a geometric, physical, mathematical model of an electric arc in SMEAF as an ionized cylindrical gas source of thermal radiation (Figure 3), and obtained formulas for calculating the thermal radiation of an arc on surfaces in SMEAF. Three of the sixteen derived formulas for calculating heat transfer in SMEAF shown in Figure 4. Subsequently, using copyright, the formula for calculating the thermal radiation of a cylindrical gas volume on a heating surface is called the first law of thermal radiation of a gas volume of Makarov.

4. The Results of Using the Theory of Heat Transfer in the Practice of Operating Steel Melting Electric Arc Furnaces (SMEAF)

The author developed a pioneering theory of heat transfer in SMEAF. The theory includes the integration of 16 differential equations and the derivation of 16 formulas for calculating heat transfer in SMEAF for any spatial position of the electric arc and heating surface.

The formulas derived allow one to determine the flow of thermal radiation from an arc to a metal bath, walls, SMEAF, calculate the electrical and technological modes of operation in which the arc is deepened into a metal bath and slag, its efficiency is increased, the energy consumption of the furnace is reduced, the specific energy consumption for smelting one-ton steel. The derived formulas and the heat transfer theory developed on their basis allowed us to develop 15 innovative designs of SMEAF and methods for melting steel in them, to explain the causes of uneven wear of the wall lining in chipboard (Figure 5). At the V International Forum on Intellectual Property in the Field of Metallurgical Technologies and Energy Support for Metallurgical Technologies, held in 2013 in Moscow, the inventor was awarded the silver medal of the forum.

The author of the pioneer theory conducted experimental research at metallurgical plants in Russia, Severstal, Chelyabinsk, Orsk-Khalilovsky, Oskol electrometallurgical and others. Experimental studies have confirmed the truth of the developed theory. The calculated heat transfer data in furnaces and the experimental data on heat transfer in furnaces have high convergence: the calculated and experimental data do not differ by more than 10%.

More than 35 years developed by A. Makarov The theory of heat transfer in electric arc furnaces is used to train metallurgical students at NITU MISiS and all metallurgical universities and metallurgical departments of technical universities in Russia and universities in Russian-speaking countries abroad. The theory is used at all metallurgical enterprises in Russia to calculate and select rational energy-technological modes of operation of furnaces. The results of a forty-year theoretical and experimental study of the thermal radiation of ionized and non-ionized gas volumes, heat transfer in the arc and flare metallurgical furnaces, furnaces, and combustion chambers are presented by the author in a monograph [4] and in the training manual “A. Makarov Heat transfer in electric arc and flare metallurgical furnaces and power plants. St. Petersburg, publishing house ‘Doe’. 2014 384 pp”. Textbook Makarova A. N. It is the main textbook on heat transfer in electric arc furnaces and is recommended by UMO for education in metallurgy of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation for university students. The textbook is used at universities in the metallurgical field and at the metallurgical departments of technical universities, as well as in metallurgical companies in Russia.

In Russia, metallurgical companies currently have installed over 50 hundred-ton steel-melting electric arc furnaces with a capacity of 90 MW and a capacity of 1 million tons each. In the early 1990s, in these furnaces, the specific energy consumption was 450 - 460 kWh/t, and the total consumption of 450 - 460 million kWh per furnace. By 2015, due to technological factors and the proper organization of heat transfer in these furnaces, the specific energy consumption decreased to 350 - 360 kWh/t, total to 350 - 360 million kWh per year per furnace. Energy saving is 100 million kWh per furnace. A certain merit in saving energy in metallurgical companies belongs to A. N. Makarov, the developer of the theory of heat transfer in electric arc furnaces. The recognition of this fact is the results of the international exhibition Metal-Expo 2018. In November 2018, the 24th International Industrial Exhibition “Metal-Expo 2018” of the achievements of metallurgical companies, including metallurgical engineering companies, research institutes, universities and departments of the metallurgical field, was held at VDNH in Moscow. The exhibition was attended by 550 companies from 32 countries, including 320 Russian and 230 foreign companies, some of which participated in the contests “High-tech developments, equipment, technologies, and products of ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy” and “The best publication in the metallurgical industry”. The Organizing Committee and the Competition Committee of the XXIV Metal-Expo 2018 International Industrial Exhibition included the heads of the following organizations and institutions: departments of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia, the Russian Union of Metal Products Suppliers, metallurgical companies, research institutes and universities of the metallurgical field. Textbook “Makarov A.N. Heat transfer in electric arc and flare metallurgical furnaces and power plants. St. Petersburg: Doe, 2014, 384 pp.” awarded the silver medal of the Metal-Expo 2018 exhibition in the nomination “The Best Edition in the Metallurgical Industry”. NITU MISiS was awarded the gold medal for many years of training, the creation of materials and technologies, and in connection with the 100th anniversary.

Russian metallurgical companies operate steadily, successfully develop, sell products, both in Russia and abroad, industrialized countries of the European Union and the USA.

5. Use of Scientific Discovery to Improve Flare Heating Furnaces

Calculation of heat transfer in flare furnaces (Figure 6) according to the laws of thermal radiation of gas volumes (Table 1, Table 2) made it possible for the first time to obtain complete information about the flows of thermal radiation from the torch, heated walls, and vault falling onto all faces of ingots and other heated products. Hearth, combustion products, taking into account re-reflection and absorption (Figure 7), to identify the causes of uneven heating, to develop methods and heating devices that increase the uniformity of heating products, decrease heating time and fuel consumption, increases the productivity of furnace (obtained patents). The design of heating wells has not changed for 80 years (Figure 6). Patents for inventions of flare furnaces were obtained: 1) with 2 burners (Figure 8); II - with 6 burners (Figure 9); 2) with 12 burners and other patents (Figure 10, Figure 11), the descriptions of which are set forth by the author in monographs and textbooks.

6. Use of Scientific Discovery to Study and Improve Heat Transfer in the Furnaces of Steam Boilers

According to the laws of heat radiation of gas volumes and the calculation method developed on their basis for heat transfer in flare furnaces, and combustion chambers, heat transfer is calculated in the furnace of a steam boiler, of a power unit with a capacity of 800 MW and other power units. The results of the calculation of heat transfer in the furnace of a steam boiler typical normative characteristic of the boiler (TGMP-204) are presented in Figure 12. The distribution of torch radiation fluxes and deposits in the pipes along the perimeter and height of the furnaces are substantially uneven, which negatively affects the operation of the boiler (Figure 12(b)): the boiler downtime for repairs and pipe flushing from in-pipe deposits increases.

The design of the furnaces of steam boilers in which the unevenness of heat fluxes, in-pipe deposits is reduced, the number of repairs and downtimes of the boiler is reduced (Figure 13).

The calculation according to the laws of thermal radiation of gas volumes made it possible for the first time to obtain complete information about the torch thermal radiation fluxes incident on the front, rear, sidewalls along the perimeter and height of the furnaces, on the reasons for the unevenness of deposits along the perimeter and height of the furnaces, the uneven formation of vapor in the pipes, and the causes of burnout burner devices, and other physical phenomena occurring in the furnaces of steam boilers. The author has developed patented innovative fire chambers of steam boilers [12] [13] [14] [15] in which the above mentioned negative phenomena occurring in fire chambers are reduced, their description is described in textbooks, monographs, articles [16] [17] [18] [19].^{ }

7. Use of Scientific Discovery to Study and Improve Heat Transfer in the Combustion Chambers of Gas Turbine Plants

According to the developed and set out in Table 2 methodology calculated the heat transfer in combustion chambers (CC) Gas turbine plants (GTP with a capacity of 4.25 MW. Torch capacity 16.28 MW. The calculation results are shown in Figure 14.

(a) (b)

Figure 14. The diagram of the combustion chamber and the distribution of isotherms over the volume of the flame (a); the distribution of the densities of the heating and cooling flows along the length of the flame tube (b).

An analysis of the density distribution of the resulting heating fluxes along the length of the combustion chamber showed their considerable unevenness: from 380 kW/m^{2} on the surfaces of a large cone to 120 kW/m^{2} in the middle ring of the flame tube and up to 8 kW/m^{2} in the last annular zone of the flame tube at the mixer. At a distance of 0.5 m from the burner, the cooling of the combustion chamber is unsatisfactory since the resulting heat fluxes from the flame exceed the heat fluxes for cooling the air. For reliable operation of the combustion chamber, correction of the cooling air parameters along the length of the combustion chamber is required.

The densities of the thermal radiation incident from the torch were calculated on the horizontal heating surface and the burner device for different torch lengths (Figure 15).

As can be seen from the calculation results, an increase in the length of the torch with a constant power of the torch entails a decrease in heat fluxes to the embrasure and burner. With an increase in the torch length, 2.7 times from 3 to 8 m, the density of heat fluxes to the burner decreased 4 times from 480 to 120 kW/m^{2}. The calculation data are confirmed by experimental studies on the furnaces of steam boilers TGMP-314 of a 300 MW power unit at TPP-21, TPP-23 Mosenergo, and Konakovskaya TPP: with an increase in the length of the flame at constant power from 3 to 5 m, i.e. 1.7 times, the density of the heat fluxes of the torch radiation to the burner device decreased by 2 times from 1500 - 1400 kW/m^{2} to 700 - 750 kW/m^{2}, the life of the burners increased by 4 times from 6 - 12 months to 2 - 4 years.

Calculations according to the laws of thermal radiation of gas volumes and the methodology developed on their basis made it possible for the first time to obtain complete calculated information about the distribution of torch radiation fluxes over the surface of a flame tube, a burner of a gas turbine installation, about the magnitude and location of the maximum heat fluxes of a torch on the surface of a flame tube for organizing effective cooling and increase the service life of the GTP flame tube.

At present, the temperature of gases in the compressor station and gas turbine is 1400˚C - 1600˚C (Figure 16). The costs of creating the gas turbine engine AL-31F amounted to several billion US dollars. The creation time is 10 years. About 10% of this amount is accounted for by the design and experimental

studies of the composite structure, testing of the new design of the structure before its operational destruction, followed by changes in the design and the use of new alloys to achieve durability, again testing the design of the structure before destruction, the creation of the next prototype of the structure with heat-resistant coating and such work continues until the creation of a sample of the COP with good performance properties, and increased service life. The design, research, manufacture, testing of a prototype CC continues for several years until the creation of a CC sample with high heat resistance, reliability, and durability.

When using the developed methodology for calculating heat transfer in gas turbine compressor stations, gas turbine engine, based on the open laws of thermal radiation of gas flare volumes, the gas generator creation time can be reduced by 2 - 3 times, the costs of creating a gas compressor by 20% - 30%, and the creation of a gas turbine by 5% - 8% The savings in the creation of a new generation gas turbine engine using the open laws of thermal radiation of gas volumes of flares and the developed methodology for calculating heat transfer in a compressor station can be several hundred million dollars.

8. Fundamental Laws of Physics

All the fundamental laws of physics, the laws of Newton, Hooke, Fourier, and Ohm (Table 3), thermal radiation of gas volumes of Makarov (Table 1) and others, have a relatively simple spelling, they have few calculated parameters, but this is their fundamental nature, universality, and inclusiveness, multidisciplinary, accurate description of natural phenomena.

The fundamental laws of physics are the basis for the development of theories, calculation methods, with the help of which all existing types of engineering and technologies were created in the 20th - 21st centuries, electrification, mechanization, automation, computerization of industry, agriculture and everyday life were carried out.

9. Conclusions

With the scientific discovery of the laws of thermal radiation of gas volumes of torches and electric arcs, it became possible for the first time to calculate the heat transfer in electric arc [20] [21] [22] [23] and torch furnaces, and combustion chambers with high accuracy, to improve the heat transfer and design of electric

For the scientific discovery of the laws of thermal radiation of gas volumes by the author of a similar significance, for the discovery by Win and Planck of the laws of thermal radiation of solids, an absolutely black body, to Win in 1911, Planck was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918. For Einstein’s discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect of radiation in 1921, which was similar insignificance, and for the development of the theory of the atom and radiation from it, Bohr was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 1922. The laws of thermal radiation of gas volumes, as well as the laws of thermal radiation of solids, blackbody, belong to the fundamental laws of physics, its section “Quantum Physics of Thermal Radiation”. Bohr was the last scientist to receive the Nobel Prize in Physics for discovering the fundamental laws of physics. The discovery of the fundamental laws of physics is an outstanding event in the life of mankind, which occurs once every 50 - 80 years. Confirmation of this fact is physics textbooks for schools and universities, which set out a little more than 30 laws discovered by mankind over 3 thousand years, starting from the III century BC, from the law of Archimedes and ending with the last fundamental laws, postulates discovered by Bohr in 1913.
