The tutorial concerning diesel
The tutorial concerning diesel is done with heptane C7H16. I would like to use different hidrocarbons, for example C12H26. I know I have to change the species, the reactions and the coeffs in chemkin/chem.inp and the nasa polinomials in chemkin/term.dat. I supose also in constant/thermophysicalproperties i should ad some coeffs but I do not know how.
What do I have to change to use a different fuel then those mentioned in chemkin/therm.dat?
I found the IDEA fuel in the s
I found the IDEA fuel in the src/thermophysicalModels/liquids directory, but I do not know how to use it.
What do I have to do in order to use the IDEA fuel?
Hi. Tomislav You can use th
You can use the fuel by changing the liquidFuelComponents in constant/thermophysicalProperties.
Thanks. I tried but I receive
I tried but I receive again some errors.
Do I have to change the reactions and the species in chem.inp? Do I have to put the reactions for both the components of IDEA (C10H7-CH3 and N-C10H22(DECANE)? Where can I find the reaction coefficients?
Do I have to change something in chemkin/thermo.dat?
I tried to use C14H30. I chang
I tried to use C14H30. I changed chem.inp with the reaction
2C14H30 + 43O2 => 28CO2 + 30H2O
but I get
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR : Elemental imbalance in H in reaction
2C14H30^0.25 + 43O2^1.5 = 28CO2 + 30H2O
(2.81171e+06 0 7940.36)
on line 10
What is the reason?
Hi Tomislav, Try with the
Try with the following
C14H30 + 21.5 O2 => 14CO2 + 15H2O
and see what happens.
Hello, Shouldn't you be usi
Shouldn't you be using:
C14H30 + 21 O2 => 14 CO2 + 15 H2O
The O was in imbalance.
Sorry, Never mind my post :
Never mind my post :-) Thought there was something else written there.
Tommaso's post was correct, sorry again.
Tomislav, it seems to be so
it seems to be something related to the coefficients:
FORD / C14H30 0.25 /
FORD / O2 1.5 /
Try to investigate what they mean.
Yes, I just left them from the
Yes, I just left them from the tutorial for C7H16. I 'll try to investigate.
I am trying to run sprayFoam. I am using C12H26 and have added the specie in therm.dat and reaction in chem.inp.
H O C N AR
C12H26 O2 N2 CO2 H2O

I am getting following error.

Where is the imbalance?
I have a question for Abhishekd18 (and also for everyone who could help me). Did you solve the problem of the reaction imbalance? I have the same problem and I also tried to divide by 2 all the reaction coefficients in order to have a unitary coefficient for the dodecane, but still nothing... Furthermore I have updated my therm.dat with the correct janaf coefficients, so I think the problem is related only to the chem.imp file.
I hope you could help me and thanks in advance! :-)
Where did you get the JANAF coefficients for C12H26 from? Could you please share them?
