 November 27, 2005, 06:52 Simplest combustion model #1 CFD Student Guest   Posts: n/a Dear CFD People, I wrote density-based, Favre-Averaged Navier-Stokes solver based on 2-d finite volume cell-centered scheme with central averaging (JST) and upwind schemes (van leer, Roe FDS, E/H-CUSP) using dual time stepping method for simulating unsteady flows with Weiss&Smith preconditioner for computing flow in the incompressible limit. I also implemented Baldwin-Lomax and Spalart-Allmaras models for turbulence. Although I am completely new in combustion modeling, I am willing to extend my code for simulating combustion and I want to start with the simplest model in 2-d. I heard "Arrhenius model" is the simplest one? is it true? Any help is greatly appreciated. Best regards. CFD Student.

It should be fairly straight forward to code and more stable than a finite-rate model. Dave

 December 7, 2005, 04:23 multi phase model-query #7 balu Guest   Posts: n/a Subcooling of Refrigerent(From 79 to 60 K) tanks of Liquid nitrogen by using fluid dynamic pump (Ejectors) I have modelled the above 2D axis symmetry with Multi phase model.Liduid tank with vapor is separated by interface over the tank the ejector assembly is mounted. Is it the above model"ll give better result,then i wish to know inital vapor condition & boundary conditions of the above domain in transient analysis. Thanks.

In contrast to usual text-formats, the C-MECH-library provides the user with a number of functions calculating thermodynamic, chemical kinetic and molecular transport properties. Hence, the C-MECH formatted reaction mechanisms can directly be applied in simulations and analysis. C-MECH can be used to evaluate: * Chemical reation rates * Thermodynamic characteristics * Molecular transport coefficients Regards Alexey
