 January 2, 2012, 13:21 finite rate/eddy dissipation model #1 Member   Boudour Join Date: Oct 2011 Posts: 34 Rep Power: 6 Hello Everyone, Could someone inform me how to give input for the pre-exponential factor for a complex mechanism in Fluent? Do I need to convert it from gmol/cm3 to kgmol/m3 with the reaction order as powers or do I specify the value which is given in the literature. or should i keep them const as they are !! my reaction is c10h22+15.5O2=10co2+11h2O In the literature the Pre-exponential factor is given as values and all they say is it is consitent with units of concentration (gmol/cm3)^1-m-n where m and n are 1 for an elementary mechanism. The other problem is that in Fluent when I use the value of Pre-exponential factor as it is (by default), it is working. any help would be appreciated Thank you.
