 June 11, 2002, 14:39 Combustion problem, Temp to high. #1 Devin Guest   Posts: n/a Hello everyone, I'm trying to model an HVOF thermal spray process, but I'm having some difficulty. I'm getting temperatures in excess of 4500K when the flame temperature of propylene is approx. 2300K. The model is using ideal-gas as it is a supersonic flow and the standard k-e model for turbulence. The boundary condition for the fuel inlet is a propylene-oxygen mixture. I suspect this may be my proplem. I've done some other cases involving separate fuel and oxygen supplies with better results. Any thoughts? Devin

 June 16, 2002, 20:37 Re: Combustion problem, Temp to high. #5 Jin-Wook LEE Guest   Posts: n/a Adiabatic flame temperature of most fuel with 'AIR' as oxidant is about 2000C(~2300K) or higher. Theoretically, Adiabatic flame temperature of most fuel with OXYGEN as oxidant might be higher than 4000K. But this is only theoretical value. In general they say that, in real experiment, the flame temperature is lower than 4000K because of dissociation. Calculation of Adiabatic Flame Temperature(AFT) : Q_in = Integral from T_ref to T_aft dot M Sigma (Cp)_i dot m_i dT Where, dot M : total mass flow rate dot m : mass fraction of each species Cp_i : specific heat of each species ...... ......

Dear Devin,
I am modeling the HVOF process in fluent and I am also getting very high temperature. I hope u got the solution for that. Could u please tell me the solution for getting the temperature around 2500.
Thanks

Hello Devin I am simulating HVOF aswell on Fluent and I am having some issues Could I get some information on your case set up as my results so not look very realistic
