need help on Sublimation
I am doing solid urea injection into boiler but I don't know how to set sublimation rate. There should be some place for it in FLUENT (as its help says) but I can't find it. Any one has any helpful idea?
It's like solid fuel combustion. The rate can be entered into material properties of the combusting particle.
1- I defined new material, solid urea, in material section; however, I didn't find any place to enter sublimation rate.
2- I selected "urea-solid" in Material drop-down list in DPM (inert) and set all the required parts. I should mention that urea-solid" is different from "solid urea" that I already defined. It exist regardless of defining any new material.
3- Then I ran it with my combustion case but what I finally got is a stream of solid particles that move along a pathline and leave my boiler.There is no change in their size (and consequently no sublimation!).
I think now you understand my problem. Even if you don't have any experience with urea injection, you could assume it as a new solid particle that is going to burn. How should I set the combustion properties and force FLUENT to assume it as a fuel and not just a particle. In case of a new solid fuel (it could be a new biomass) there should be some place to define the devolatilization properties or ask FLUENT to consider devolatilization.
I am looking forward to getting your help.
Thanks a lot.
