 May 7, 2004, 11:24 Re: premixed combustion using Zimont model #3 bob Guest   Posts: n/a Thanks I have some simple questions. I started simulating the propane-air combustion using Zimnot model and adiabatic. During starting of the simulation residual was decresing and then suddenly it started to increase do you know th reason or help me. Also how can I dcribe outflow boundary condition for progress variable is it specified in pressure outlet boundary condition where back flow progress variable is taken to be 1.0. Also what is the best way do simulations first compute the steady using non-reactive flows and then start the combustion calculation. Thanks for your asnwers bob

What residuals started to increase. This could be for many reasons, for example, grid quality, how you initialized the solution, under relaxation factors etc... 3. For your outlet condition you can either use Pressure Outlet or Outflow. Pressure Outlet may be more stable and in a combustion simulation which is never easy may give better stability. The progress variable states that if the mixture is burnt then c=1, therefore at the outlet where you would expect this the backflow value should be set to 1. 4. This is up to you and depends on the complexity of the flow field. In general you should start with a isothermal model and build up. I have used this model with combustion form the start and patched a fluid region to iginite the mixture. Hope this helps Tom

 May 7, 2004, 12:33 Re: premixed combustion using Zimont model #5 bob Guest   Posts: n/a Thanks it works fine when you have non-adiabatic combustion when you have adiabatic combustion it is giving me a problem. By the way how to specify equaivalence ratio of the mixture let us say I want to simulate lean premix so Equivalence ratio=0.6. Thanks for your response bob

Hello, I'm a new user of OpenFoam. Could I ask how to use this zimont model? In XiFoam or reactiongFoam? Could you give me some information

 October 21, 2015, 13:07 premixed flame #11 New Member   aditya fabrication Join Date: Mar 2015 Posts: 10 Rep Power: 3 HI, I am a newer in premixed combustion. When I use the FLUENT to modeling, I am confusing about the premixed combustion using Zimont with G-equation model in FLUENT. I can't find where can I specify the mixture(methane-air) equivalence ratio or about the mixture materials. Anyone knows how to solve it ? Please help me. Thanks in advance! This question is confusing me several days! Best regards!
