Hi

I ask for your help about the following:

I want to simulate non-premixed combustion of a blended fuel stream of the following hydrocarbons: C2H2, C3H8, H2, CO and C7H16 with reactingFoam so :

1. Is it possible to employ the "chem.inp.full", and just define a file for each compound ?

or instead i need another kinetic scheme,

I thank for any suggestion

best

Victor,

I would suggest looking for another kinetic model, at least to start out with. Multidimensional simulations with the number of species and reactions in "chem.inp.full" will require substantial computer resources.

Hi Dave

Thanks for your suggestion. It's just that I want to have in the same fuel stream different hydrocarbons, and want to know if with a scheme like that of heptane, the blend nature of the fuel could be captured with such a kinetic model.

Do you know if it is possible ?

thanks

best
