A method for projecting radiation chamber representing an up-to-date method for projecting reaction furnaces based on modelling is described. The project is divided into a preliminary balance calculation, a method for projecting radiation chamber tube system and a simulation calculation of thermal chemical processes. The applicability of the model is illustrated by means of an example. Also principles for projecting radiation chambers of reforming furnaces as well as application spheres of the model to projecting practice are referred to.
