Burner booms, one of the most important pieces of equipment for well testing procedures, are used to burn associated gas or oil-and-gas mixture. This paper first conducts a mesh sensitivity analysis to find a proper grid size. Grid independence is evaluated by the correlation value in different monitoring points. Then, the heat radiation of the burner boom on the semi-submersible drilling platform is analyzed using FDS. Without water curtain, it researches and compares the impact of low, medium and high speed wind condition on heat radiation. Without the wind influence, the simulation on heat radiation is done on the optimized water curtain design. The results show that the water curtain design can efficiently reduce the heat radiation on the platform, which has guiding significance for engineering design.
