Hi can anyone tell me how fluent convert the units of preexponential while importing data from chemkin to fluent. specially conversion of sticking coefficient into preexponential. I will be thankful

Note: All quantities for the Arrhenius rate parameters are in units of kgmol, m3, and seconds.

Important: It is important to note that if you have selected the British units system, the Arrhenius factor should still be entered in SI units. This is because ANSYS Fluent applies no conversion factor to your input of Ar (the conversion factor is 1.0) when you work in British units...

well thanks for your reply. i have pre exponent constant in units of cm2/mol-sec and 1/sec. can i put it as it is in the fluent.

No. You must convert to kmol m^3.

Unless you've changed the Fluent display units.

Any guess how can I convert from cm2/sec to Kmol/m3.

FLUENT performs units conversion during CHEMKIN mechanism import at least when you use default SI units.

The answer is "Yes", if you use File -> Import CHEMKIN mechanism, and if you've specified site density in mol/cm2 (!) in your input file.

Example:
SITE/PLATINUM/ SDEN/2.07E-9/
....
CO(S) + Pt(S) => C(S) + O(S) 1e+21 0.0 200.0
....

Then, FLUENT would display your surface site density as 2.07e-08 in kmol/m2 under Species -> Mechanism
and your preexponent
1e+21 would be treated as in cm2/mol/s, -> * 2.07e-09 to convert to 1/s, then *2.07e-08 to convert back to m2/kmol/s.

And you would see 1e+20 m2/kmol/s for preexponent under Species -> Reaction -> your Reaction (pretty much units, yes?)

the pre-exponential value depends on the number of reactions, so when you import mechanism from Chemkin to fluent, the value will change. usually divided by (10^3) for bimolecular reaction, the unit (cm3/mol.s) ; and by (10^6) termolecular reaction, the unit (1/s).
I am not 100 percent sure if this answered your question. I hope this will help

Can anybody explain how is fluent converting the units for adsorption reaction of the kind
H2 + Pt(s) + Pt(s) => H(s) + H(s) 4.600E-02 0.000 0.000
STICK FORD/Pt(s) 1/
where the order w.r.t Platinum is 1.
If the order is 2 it calculates pre exponential factor according to the expression So/sitedensity^2*(RT/2*pi*M) in prescribed units, which is coming right according to my calculation, but not the former case applying the same formula with So/sitedensity^1*(RT/2*pi*M) .
Please explain!!.. along with the units if possible.

Thanks
