coal combustion
Dear sirs / madams,

I would like to know what are the coal combustion softwares used in industries. If possible, could you please comment on their capabilities? How about the BYU pcgc3 code? I do pulverized coal combustion simulation.

Re: coal combustion
I think that BYU's PCGC3(or PCGC2) is very good for coal combustion modeling, especially for coal chemistry. But it has restriction on the geometry. It is based on the orthogonal coordinates(rectangular and cylindrical). And most commercial package, including fluent, CFX, starCD and ...... can do it with BFC and unstructured grid nets.

Sincerely, Jinwook.

Re: coal combustion
One package is superior in this aspect, and the other package is better in that aspect...... But, as you know, coal combustion belongs to fairly traditional category. I use only one package for my modeling. So, sorry but I can not say that this one is better than that one. I think that, all commercial packages are basically similar.
