 December 10, 2012, 08:16 how to set a fire #1 New Member   Mohamed Join Date: Nov 2012 Posts: 11 Rep Power: 7 I want to set a fire with methane I have a room 2 x 2 x 2 m, methane CH4 entered from the center of the bottom by a nozzle (0.25 x 0.25) at speed of 9 m/s and 1000K to ignite. as a velocity inlet with 0.3 CH4 and 0.22 O2 I made species transport, volumetric and finite rate/eddy dissipation using methane-air mixture, inlet diffusion, and diffusion energy source Also i use interaction with continuous phase, and update dpm sources every flow iteration(30) to have lagranrian model. There are 4 windows (each of 125x 500 mm), 2 Pressure inlet and 2 pressure outlet with 0.23 O2 at 300 K Sometimes it shows divergence in species 1 or Temperature, Other times after calculation it shows no (zero) Co2 or H2o which means that no combustion took place. Please tell me how to proceed Another thing, I need to reach a stable flame, so shall i make it stable from the begining, or make it transient and calculate till it reaches stable values. Thanks Last edited by Bido14; December 11, 2012 at 07:55.

I need to ignite the methane and have a normal temperature distribution for the flame
