This project work involves the design of a laboratory fire-tube steam boiler using
Computer-Aided Design (CAD) technology. The designed boiler is intended for utilization in
school laboratories, thereby enhancing students’ learning process. Appropriate thermodynamic
formulas were used to compute material streams, heat transfer and operating parameters of the
steam boiler. Computed boiler data were used to carry out a detailed design of various parts of
the boiler. A Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software (Autodesk 3ds Max) was used to create a
3D model of the steam boiler. The study has shown that a state-of-the-art design could be
facilitated by employing both conventional and applied modeling technique approaches, which
enables an efficient manufacturing process.
