Chemical Reaction and Porous Beds
Hi all,

I'm looking into different software vendors to try to accomplish some coupled heat transfer/CFD analysis with chemical reactions. I have a reacting flame (burning CO, hydrogen, some methane) heating tubes of a bed packed with a catalyst. I have the full equations for all of the reactions taking place in the flame and the packed bed. This is essentially a hydrocarbon reformer. Is this something that OpenFOAM would be able to simulate with relative ease, or would I be looking at creating a lot of my own solvers?

Thanks for all of your help.
