Dear Friends,

Any body can tell me, Fluent can be used to get the pressure and temperature distribution in the rocket exhaust plume.

bye with regards sisir

Sisir, I can't see any reason not to do so If you model your problem properly. Jim

Thanks Jim Clancy for your response. I am an electrical engineer so I have lots of difficulties and doubts. Still I am trying to do using Fluent. Pls send me ur email id for further contact. My email id: sisir_in@rediffmail.com

bye.... sisir

Hi,

I wanted to disinterring this post to tell you about my problem.

I'm supposed to calculate the concentration of a species in a jet nozzle.
Literature show me the peak temperature (reburning zone) far beyond the FLUENT calculation and mass fraction of OH for example does not change in the reburning zone ...

Solver is pressure-based, I'm in k-e standard (or realizable) and species transport (12 species and 17 reversibles reactions) with laminar finite rate model.

I like to know if you have some advice to help me see more clearly?!

Thanks

i think it's the fault of the unit of the rate coefficient (Arrhenius)
in litterature, i have the activation energy in cal/mol and R in cal/mol.K whereas FLUENT wants E in J/kgmol...

Does anyone would have any idea?

Ok, you should double check the units!!!
Check the order of the reaction as well!

Are you sure that laminar finite rate applies in your model????

If not try the finite rate/ eddy dissipation model

However, reacting flows are highly difficult problems as far as convergence with experimental data is concerned.
There are more sophisticated models for homogeneous reactions (chemkin tables...) but first check the ordinary ones.

Thank you for your answer.
I checked the units and i found several mistakes...
Now the reaction are simulated but no in the same range...
I explain, i've reaction between OH and O, HCL for example and they have to caused a rise of temperature in a specific part of domain... but i'have the maximum of concentration of the OH species but not in temperature...
Which track should i follow in your opinion?
My model : PBNS, standard Ke, Non equilibrium with Viscous heating, and laminar finite rate.
