The thesis describes the design and the development of a chamber furnace with an electric resistor heating and a boogie. The first part presents the background of internal stress formation process and methods for stress reliving. Succeeding are the individual components presented together with their pros and cons. Based on that, we have chosen the best concept and defined the requirements. Structure of the thesis is based on the individual components of the furnace. For every component we have presented possible variations, chose the one we have found optimal. Energy balance of the furnace is the foundation for choosing and dimensioning of the heating elements, refractory and insulation. Only when those have been chosen, we are familiar with the mechanical loads on the furnace. Furnace design continues with the selection of mechanical actuators. A numerical analysis of the most stressed parts, e.g. frame and boogie, was also performed. Main focus of the thesis is on the mechanical design of the furnace. However, this thesis is multidisciplinary and cover various mechanical engineering fields, from heat transfer to production technologies, as well as the fields of electrical engineering and industrial process control.
