diamondx will become famous soon enough
tutorial on how to mesh and how to perform simulation are included in fluent.

the rocket solid propellant ammonum perchlorat with binder HTPB OR PVC OR PMMA, and miniral ingrediants. first what is the model in ansys must be used? what about the pyrolisis model solid gaz?, boundry conditions? turbulence...

I have worked on solid rocket propulsion using Fluent when I was co-supervising MS project.

There are many problems that need to be addressed:

1. There is no inlet

2. solid particle get eroded due to combustion and depleted at different rates from different surfaces of fuel and that must be included in simulation

3.The first change to liquid and ultimately to gaseous phase. So all these phases must be modeled. How? I don't know.

4. The combustion models in Fluent assumes fuel to be gas or in liquid phase and no option for solid.

In short you may be required to implement your own model in Fluent, which somebody added for their research at some US lab, but it is not available in open literature.

Well we thought that once combustion is started (no fuel is injected, every thing is inside) , so there is no inlet. What do you think?

I guess, if you are just modelling thrust and instability, knowing an approximate regression rate, you might be able to simulate the solid propellant using the product of combustion in the liquid/gaseous form. (Or premix air/fuel and inject radially along the propellant surface).

My question is how would you specify the fuel species in fluent. I am really new to this program.
