I'm trying to find Q for chimney/stove that looks very similar to the picture attached. I was going to use the formula below, but I realized that it does not account for the venturi effect if a chimney was conical in shape - i.e. smaller at the top vs. the base. Nor does it account for differences in the sizes of the air inlet and outlet.
Q = flue-gas flow-rate, m³/s
A = cross-sectional area of chimney, m² (assuming it has a constant cross-section)
C = discharge coefficient (usually taken to be 0.65–0.70)
g = gravitational acceleration at sea level, 9.807 m/s²
H = height of chimney, m
Ti = absolute average temperature of the flue gas in the stack, K
To = absolute outside air temperature, K
I would like to know if there is a formula to find Q that would allow me to account for the following variables:
- area of the bottom air inlet
- area of the top outlet
- temp inside the chimney
- temp outside the chimney
- height of the chimney
