Biography

Biography: Anthony Mann is a mechanical engineer who specialises in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), combustion modelling and boilers.  He has more than 30 years’ CFD experience, mostly in the area of boiler combustion modelling.  He is the principal author of more than 200 consulting and research reports for Australian and overseas clients.  The consultation work includes CFD modelling of boiler design modifications for reduced tube erosion and dew point corrosion, improved combustion performance and reduced emissions.  He has carried out a number of boiler design evaluations, boiler upgrade studies, boiler circulation analyses and pneumatic conveying system designs.  He is also extensively involved in boiler performance testing and troubleshooting, emission testing, training courses for sugar factory personnel and modelling of pollutant emissions.  Over the last 20 years he has worked on a range of research projects in areas such as boiler combustion modelling (bagasse and coal), gasification, pneumatic cane cleaning, flue gas dryer design, self heating of bagasse stockpiles, minimising dust emissions, energy audits, sugar factory economic modelling and process modelling.
