 January 24, 2014, 10:26 Laminar Burning Velocity Calculations with Fluent #1 New Member   Naseh Hosseini Join Date: Jul 2012 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 6 I am trying to run a simple case of premixed laminar methane-air flame. In order to investigate effects of acoustic waves on it, but not for now. I heard that you can easily get wrong laminar flame speed in Fluent if your grid is not fine enough and if you use default values of single step chemistry. So I was introduced to make a quasi 1D model (on element in height and thousands in length) ans apply the mixture as velocity inlet and check the flame speed. I can run this simulation and the flame forms in a distance. Now how can I actually calculate the laminar burning velocity? I was told I can use this formula: S_Laminar = (1/rho_unburnt)*Integral{(rho*dY/dt)dx Would you please tell me how I can extract these parameters in Fluent? Thank you.

If you have found how to extract the data to find laminar burning velocity, can you please let me know? Kind regards, Adithya

Then in Excel (or similar) you can calculate the flame movement speed. Depending on your inlet velocity you can then calculate it simply by a relative velocity concept
