Hi,
I have a problem about solid combusiton. I am wondering if Fluent can deal with it or not. Here is the problem:

A diffusion flame exists over a solid fuel. The heat transfer between the diffusion flame and solid fuel should be considered. The solid fuel vapor is pyrolyzed (vaporized) from solid surface and the pyrolysis rate is a function of solid surface temperature. It can assmue that the degression of solid fuel surface can be ignored.

According to my trials on FRUENT, I can not set the fuel mass flux from "solid surface". Does anyone have comment on this or know what model I should use?

Thanks in advance.

Sam

hello,

Which multiphase model are you using to define your problem.
i guess, Euler-granular model will be helpful for your purpose.

To define pyrolysed species you need to define pseudo species from material panel, and then use Macro, DEFINE_MASS_TRANSFER to release pyrolysed products from pseudo species to gas (primary)phase.

i hope this will help you.

Thank you for your reply.
I will try the model and the Macro you suggested.

Currently, I use a pyrolysis layer over the solid surfcace, which is very thin, and set it as porous medium, so I can apply source Macros on the porous region. FYI.
