Yes,you can. The mass conservation equation need a source term. There's an example in phoenics 3.5 which simulate coke burning in a fixed bed. I think it's similar eith your problem

Hi all,

I started to use CFD to simulate vegetable oil pyrolysis (thermal cracking in the absence of air). Could you pls tell me which software I can use? I intend to use methyl decanoate as a surrogate for the oil so that I may have big problem of a huge chemical mechanism. Do I have to input the mechanism if I use chemical equilibrium?
