Default Implementation of Chemkin mechanisms in Fluent

Dear all,

I have worked in the past with Chemkin, but I am quite new to Fluent. I am simulating a gasoil burnt boiler, and I would like to implement a more expensive mechanism than the one available in Fluent (the mechanism available is a global reaction for only C16H29).

Since I do know the percentage of Parafines, olefins, aromatics in our gasoil, has anyone tried to take the global reactions proposed by fluent, put them on a Chemkin format, add them to fluent as a chemkin inputfile, and indicate as boundary conditions that the inlet is a mixture of different compounds (C16H29, C10H22, C19H30, C7H8....)? Would that result in more accurate results than just using the one step global mechanism proposed by fluent?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Dear all,

I am still struggling with how to implement a good but not too computationally expensive mechanism for gasoil.

Does anyone know of a reliable 5-10 reaction mechanism to describe gasoil chemistry?

Thanks a lot for the help!
