Hi,


I used example file therm.dat but while simulation i am getting below error on nagative cp for c6H3 species.
Error message:

application called MPI_Abort(MPI_COMM_WORLD, 1) - process 0
JOB ABORT invoked by rank 3:
ERROR: species 39 (C6H3) was found to have a negative Cp, please revise thermo data for this species in therm.dat


c6h3 from them.dat

C6H3 C 6H 3 0 0 298.000 5000.000 1000.00 1
0.58188343E+01 0.27933408E-01-0.17825427E-04 0.53702536E-08-0.61707627E-12 2
0.85188250E+05-0.92147827E+00 0.11790619E+01 0.55547360E-01-0.73076168E-04 3
0.52076736E-07-0.15046964E-10 0.85647312E+05 0.19179199E+02 4



Please somebody suggest me, which value represents cp in therm.dat.



Thank you in advance.


Best Regards,
Krishna

Hi,

You can correct for this in CONVERGE Studio. Simply load the therm.dat in to Studio and go to Gas Simulation --> Gas thermodynamic data

From the list of gas phase species, select C6h3 and use the plot button to open the plotting tool. Select "Specific Heat Capacity Cp" for Y-variable. You should be able to figure out at what temperature (X-variable), Cp goes negative.

Let's say it starting to go negative at 3600 K. Then open therm.dat in a text editor outside of Studio and change the max temperature for this species to be 3500 K.

What you are essentially doing here is to limit the maximum temperature for this species such that Cp is positive at max temperature. If the cell temperature goes beyond 3500 K in the simulation, CONVERGE will keep using the Cp at 3500 K for higher temperatures.

Dear Sir,
I have same error in converge and I checked Cp graph but there isnt any negative area for Cp
the error is " WARNING: Therm.dat: Mismatch for Cp/R at common temperature. Species = C4H4O. Low Cp/R = 20.1433, High Cp/R = 20.525"
and
C4H4O C 4H 4O 1 G 300.00 4000.00 1000.00 1

Hello,

The 14 coefficients you see in therm.dat for a species defines two polynomials. 7 coefficients define the property at high temperature and the other 7 at low temperature. The two polynomials have to be continuous at the mid temperature value specified in therm.dat. This warning states that it is not the case for this species and asking you to correct it. Please email your therm.dat and mech.dat to Support@convergecfd.com so that we can correct this discrepancy for you.

Thanks,

Dear Sir/Madam,
I would like to inform you that during reduction a mechanism five isomers created in my reaction mechanism where it produced an error in transport data during 1D simulation, could you please explain how can i creating transport data for lumped isomers? the error is:

transport data is missing for species 116, ISM001
transport data is missing for species 117, ISM002
transport data is missing for species 118, ISM003
transport data is missing for species 119, ISM004
transport data is missing for species 120, ISM005

Hi Alireza,


The transport data for lumped isomers should be written along with the mechanism data. Can you describe what you were trying to do and when the following error happens?

thank you for your answer,
I would like to inform you that I am trying to reduce Zhang2020 biodiesel mechanism i converge, with DRGEPSA and isomer lumping, the final mechanism consists of lumped isomers with appropriate data in therm_lump.dat file, but there is no information related to Isomers in transport.dat because the software doesn't generate transport.dat for reduction mechanism.

You would have to check on the Enable Transport option under Mechanism Reduction > Target Species and tolerances > Isomer Lumping tab in Studio.



After this you will have to include your transport.dat input file and the mechanism reduction tool should write out your transport_lumped.dat file.

Hello Alireza,


Which version of Studio are you currently using? Try updating it to the most recent one. You will see an option to enable transport, similar to the attached figure. If you have transport.dat file in the directory the isomer lumping should also read that and write out lumped transport data.
