Furnaces are useful for melting different materials for casting process. In this research paper, we had done advanced heat transfer analysis of induction furnace wall made of silica ramming mass using explicit finite difference method. We have divided actual geometry of furnace refractory wall into 14 elements and 24 nodes. We have derived explicit finite difference equations for all 24 nodes. We have calculated temperature distribution and thermal stress distribution for all different nodes with respect to time. We have plotted graphs for maximum temperature v/s time and maximum stress v/s time. We found that results indicate the effect of thermal fatigue in the induction furnace wall for silica ramming mass. The analysis is very helpful in understanding how thermal fatigue failure of refractory wall happens.
