I have a few questions about this. Id appreciate it very much if anybody could help me out on this. Thanks and Regards, Shankar.

 March 16, 2004, 18:19 Re: Premixed combustion -Laminar finite rate model #3 Shankar Guest   Posts: n/a Hi What will be the unit of A when E is in j/kg mol and other values are in SI units? ( k= A T^n exp (-E/RT) ) If you used the default reactions from the FLUENT database, do you have any idea how A and E were calculated? I also do not understand how the value of the rate exponent was set? Most of the literature found have the units of A and E as cm3 mol s and kJ/mol. Did you define your own reactions? Thanks, Shankar.

The units of A depend on the reaction: the Arrhenius reaction rate is governed by the product of the species concentrations to certain powers. So, the units of A are different for each reaction. When converting from cgs units (eg CHEMKIN) to SI (eg Fluent), you can use A(SI) = A(cgs) * 0.001^(sum_exp-1) where sum_exo is the sum of the rate exponents > If you used the default reactions from : the FLUENT database, do you have any idea : how A and E were calculated? Most of these came from: Westbrook, C.K. and Dryer F.L., (1981) "Simplified Reaction Mechanisms for the Oxidation of Hydrocarbon Fuels in Flames" CST, 27, pp.31-43 > Most of the literature found have the units : of A and E as cm3 mol s and kJ/mol. Did you : define your own reactions? Fluent can import mechanisms in Chemkin format.
