Thanks for the links. I've been reading and watching a lot more about it tonight.
I would need more information to be able to make a small testing model.
I'm looking for detailed like the length of the exhaust pipe, the measure of the burning chamber or of the space between it and the top of the barrel.
But as I want to adapt it for hot water heating, I think that I need more general info than a building plan for one specific model.
The "fire science" post of Erika Wisner is very instructive.
The "fire science" dvd of "wood burning stoves 2.0" should probably be very complete (they talking about math ) but it's only coming out later this year.
As I understand, the burning chamber should be left a the higher temperature possible (in order to burn all the gas left).
The water exchanger should be out of the exhaust gas, to prevent corrosion.
Finally, do you know if any one as already make measure of the quality of the air at the exit of the exhaust pipe ( temperature, CO measure, CO2 measure, O2 measure, NOX measure) ?
