Design of a Chimney for Increasing Air Flow and Its Effect on Stove Performance

improve the thermal heating efficiency and burning rate of stoves. For the purpose of comparing the performance of the earlier designed stoves with the new ones with a chimney, a new parameter "thermal specific fuel consumption" is introduced. Results show that the addition of a chimney stack generally improves stove performance and hence is an important design feature to consider.
