About us

FireCAD team has good expertise in Engineering and Construction of Power Plants, Steam Boilers, Sugar Factories and other engineering fields. This is our attempt to make available many engineering calculations in simple user friendly format for practicing Engineers. And for free of cost. We are planning to add practical and useful calculations in the following fields:

  • Boiler and Power Plants
  • Mechanical Engineering especially in Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and related
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Electrical and instrumentation

About FireCAD

FireCAD software is used for thermal designing and performance design calculations of different types of boilers. The trial versions of the software is available for download from FireCAD website at firecad.net

The calculations include the following:

  • Advanced Heat Transfer calculations like Radiation (luminous and non-luminous radiation), Convection and Conduction calculations
  • Fluid mechanics and calculations of draft loss across different sections of the boiler
  • Combustion calculations and fuel selection
  • Sizing of different sections of boiler like Furnace, Superheater, Boiler Bank, Economizer, Air heater
  • Sizing of Headers, Risers, Downcomers ..etc
  • Generation of design report consisting of sectional details, Heat Transfer and draft loss details.
  • The software consists of six standalone software for the design of the following:
  • Grate Fired Boilers up to 250,000 kg/hr, 125 bar and 550 degC. All types of solid fuels like Coal, Bagasse, Husk, Wood and other Biomass, RDF .. etc
  • Fire Tube Boilers up to 50,000 kg/hr. All types of solid/liquid/Gas fuels like Coal, Bagasse, Husk, Wood, other Biomass, RDF .. etc, Liquid Fuels like Furnace oil, LSHS.. etc , Gaseous fuels like Natural GAS, LPG, Biogas ..etc. Waste Heat Recovery Fire Tube boilers can also be designed.
  • Water Tube Package Boilers up to 150,000 kg/hr. All types of liquid/Gas fuels like Furnace oil, LSHS.. etc , Gaseous fuels like Natural GAS, LPG, Biogas ..etc.
  • Economiser : Stand alone Economisers for Power Plant Boilers, Industrial Boilers and for other applications where you need to heat water using hot gases
  • Air Heater software: Stand alone Air Heater for Power Plant Boilers, Industrial Boilers and for other applications where you need to heat cold air using hot gases
  • Superheater software: Stand alone Superheater for Power Plant Boilers, Industrial Boilers and for other applications where you need to superheated steam
  • FireCAD is used by many Boiler manufacturers and engineering consultants for accurate design of steam boilers. We have customers using the software from over 30 countries. One of the worlds biggest Travelling Grate boiler of capacity 250 TPH using Biomass fuel was designed using FireCAD software. Please download our brochure for more details from here.
