Does anyone know how to simulate two types of pulveried coal combustion in a furnace? They come into the furnace from different inlets.I appreciate your help very much.

Hello Yang:

Which CFX software are you using ?

The CFX-Tascflow software from AEA Technology can do this with as many coal inlets as you would like. Pulverized coals are defined as Lagrangian particles that devolatilize and burn as they travel through the combustor.

The coal devolatilization period is described by a vaporization curve for the volatiles. Different coal properties can be entered as percent volatiles and char fraction to simulate higher or lower rank coals. Char and volatiles burn and the particle mass is reduced accordingly. Volatile combustion chemistry can be defined using Arrhenius kinetics, flamelet mechanisms or simple eddy dissipation (mixed-is-burnt) models. Information on chemical species, flow dynamics, coal particle sizes and coal particle trajectories is available from the post-processor.

If you are interested in learning more about the CFX Tascflow software, contact Paul MacDonald at AEA Technology. His email is paulmac@asc.on.ca, phone (519) 886-8435 x 288

Hope this helps,

Judy

Hi Yang,

I imagine that you can use the USRPBC routine, where you can specify the massfraction of ash, volatiles etc. for each particle track on different patches. Hope it helps Regards Jan

Try the manual that is on your desk on your right hand side. Or maybe it is on your left hand side but you have to check that. I can't see it from here.

(1). Well, I really like your answer. (2). I think, he is new to the code. He is not yet a new user. (3). If that's the case, he might not have the set of manuals at all. (4). It would be helpful to sign up the beginner's class first. Contact the vendor to see if they provide such training in your city.

CFX-5 is pretty straightforward to use. What exactly are you trying to do? I'd suggest doing all the tutorials in CFX-5 to get a feel for how it works. The user documentation comes "on-line" with the software. You can get at it from the launcher.

Sir, i want to know about the upwind sheme.(what is the significance)

Here i have my second query: If i want to code for a rotating machinery,how to incorporate the stationary frame with rotating frame.(EG: Pbm related to the cavitation in a hydraulic turbine...here we've the rotating component as turbine runner and the stationary component as the inlet of the turbine) pls do me favour. thank you

pls check the CFX manul. The example "TPP-Unsteady simmulation of a Francis Runner flow"may be helpful.
