Oxy-Fuel combustion dasac failure
1 Attachment(s)

Im trying to simulate a Oxy-Fuel combustion with fluent, but when I try to ignite the mixture I get a lot of failures: "dasac failure at Temperature = XXXX.XXX K: Continuing... ", where XXX.XX represents the respective temperature.

Im using a pressure based, coupled solver and the EDC combustion model. I have changed the turbulence model a few times, changed to laminar ED with stiff chemistry solver and changed to the pressure based solver, but its always the same: dasac failure.

Increasing and decreasing the isat table size and changing to direct integration is meaningless..

Im using the extended Johnson & Lindstedt reaction mechanism by Frassoldati (the mechanism is attached).
I ignite the mixture with 2000-2500K.

If someone has experience with this problem, or an idea about fixing it, helping me would be very nice.

Best regards,

No idea? Does someone know other (under 10-15 species) mechanisms for simulating oxy-fuel combustion?

Hi Pat84, have you figured out your problem? I encountered this dasac failure recently and I tried several ways but nothing works.
