Combustion

Combustion problems generally involve complicated geometries, Complex physics, heat transfer and fluid flow. In such a challenging environment the benefits from CFD modeling since combustion systems are extremely costly to build and test. CFD can be an valuable tool to model the performance of different designs, perform parametric studies and virtual prototype each design before actual fabrication.

ESI-CFD uses and provides a complete interactive analysis package called CFD-ACE for CFD analysis. CFD-ACE+ consists of the following modules:

CFD-GEOM : for geometric modeling and grid generation for structured and unstructured grids

CFD-ACE : a parallel, pressure-based code employing AMG and CG solvers

CFD-VIEW : for graphical post-processing

CFD-ACE+ has been fully validated for combustion problems and has many features developed especially for combustion analysis including

- multi-step , reversible, stiff, finite-rate chemical kinetics

- prescribed PDF chemistry options

- Basic and extended mechanisms for NOx and CO

- Swirler boundary conditions

- Mass flow boundary conditions

- Detailed spray description options

- Multimedia conjugate heat transfer

Capability includes unstructured, parallel calculations using spray models and multi-step kinetics on a cluster of four PCs. Full protection of your proprietary data is guaranteed.
