# Atmospheric gas burner’s orifice and consumption calculation

(5/1)

### Description

The program calculates gas mixtures properties and using the result to calculate atmospheric gas burner consumption and orifice size.

To calculate gas mixture properties, you'll need to use the properties of the individual gases in the mixture and their respective volumetric fractions. Afterward, you can use these properties to calculate the consumption and orifice size of an atmospheric gas burner.

The program you want to use helps you design and improve gas burners that use air and a mixture of different gases as fuel.
To use the program, you need to know what gases are in the mixture and how much of each gas there is. You also need to know some basic facts about each gas, like how heavy it is, how much heat it produces, and how it behaves under different conditions. You can find these facts in books or online sources.

The program will use these facts to calculate some important properties of the gas mixture, like how heavy it is, how much heat it produces, and how it behaves under different conditions. These properties will help you figure out how much gas you need and how big the hole in the burner should be.

The program will also use these properties to calculate how much gas you need to get a certain amount of heat from the burner. You can choose how much heat you want by entering a number in the program.

The program will also use these properties to calculate how big the hole in the burner should be to let the right amount of gas through. The hole is called an orifice and it has a certain shape and size. The program will use a formula to find the area of the orifice based on the gas flow rate and the pressure difference between the gas and the air.

The size and shape of the orifice will affect how the gas and the air mix in the burner. The program will also take into account other factors that affect the mixing, such as the design of the burner, the adjustment of the air shutter, and the distance of the orifice to the venturi. The venturi is a part of the burner that narrows down and speeds up the air flow. You can find more information and examples on these factors in the references.
