Mario Pichler,


The data presented here are results of numerical simulation of the biomass pyrolysis in rotary kilns under numerous operating conditions and levels of axial dispersion of biomass particles. The varied operating conditions are the kiln diameter, the ratio of particle to kiln diameter, the ratio of kiln length to kiln diameter, the kiln's inclination angle, the Froude number, the rotational Reynolds number, and the Pèclet number. Data of 13851 single case simulations are provided in this dataset. This includes the mean particle residence time, gas, bed and kiln wall temperatures, solid and gaseous species mass flows, heat fluxes, and the solid bed height over the kiln length.
