TitleValidation of chemical reaction mechanisms for industrial use
EmployerNUMECA International
LocationBelgium, Brussels
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
For combustion modelling NUMECA offers a variety of tabulated chemistry 
models (equilibrium, flamelet, FGM, …) since they are reliable and 
computationally efficient. The combustion tables are generated using 
TabGen/Chemistry, which is NUMECA's table generation tool and is based on TU 
Eindhoven's 1D chemistry solver Chem1d. Unless equilibrium tables are 
generated, chemical mechanisms are needed to generate the combustion tables. 
In the combustion module of FINE/Open with OpenLabs there are some 
preprocessed chemical mechanisms offered for use by NUMECA's clients. To 
extend the database of chemical reaction mechanisms, new detailed reaction 
mechanisms for common fuels will be preprocessed and validated for 
industrial use. The testing process will consist of generating a combustion 
table based on the new mechanism, run elementary and industrial test cases 
with the combustion table, and compare the results with available reference 
data. If a chemical mechanism yields good results, the mechanisms and its 
range of validity will be documented, and eventually added to the database 
of TabGen/Chemistry. The work will be carried out in collaboration with 
TU/Eindhoven (TU/e), NL.
