Stove Design - Power, Grate Diameter, Chamber Height

Cookstove.net - Stove Power, Grate Diameter, Chamber Height

Discussion at the Stoves Camp led to questions about the power output of a stove relative to the diameter of the grate and height of the combustion chamber. Dean and I recommended Cookstove.net, the Website for Environmentally Sound Biomass Stoves. While the entire site deserves study below are the links to some specific design topics.

Many thanks to Piet Visser (BTG) and K Krishna Prasad for preparing such a valuable reference fro the work of the Woodburning Stove Group 1980-1995.

We should be using stove power output to identify the expected power of a stove.
