CFX Combustion and Radiation Training

Defined as an Exothermic Chemical Reaction of a fuel (For example CH
4) with an oxidant (For example O2) to form products.
Modes of Combustion:
Flame Mode: Thin Zone of intense chemical reaction called ‘flame’ exists.
Non-Flame Mode: Volumetric Combustion Process.

Applications for Combustion Modeling
Wide range of reacting flows:
Process heaters
Gas turbines
Rocket engines
Predictions of:
Flow field and mixing characteristics
Temperature field
Species concentrations
Particulates and pollutants

Eddy Dissipation and Finite Rate Chemistry Combustion Model

PDF Flamelet: NonPremixed Combustion
1. We will discuss the PDF Flamelet (PFM) Combustion model in ANSYS CFX. This combustion model is used to analyze non
premixed gaseous combustion processes.

3. We will discuss a tool called “CFX-RIF” which is used to generate input files (Libraries) for the PFM combustion model.
4. We will outline the steps for setting up a PFM combustion case in CFX-Pre.

2. We will discuss the different soot models and outline how soot is modeled in CFX

Radiation Modeling
1. We will discuss the objective of and applications for radiation modeling
2. We will define radiation and outline the development of some mathematical models for radiation
3. We will review 2 solution methods for radiation: Spectral and Spatial
4. We will discuss the radiation models that are available in CFX and how to select the best model for a given case

Advanced Combustion Models and Related Features
Extended Coherent Flame Combustion Model
Shares the framework for the partially premixed combustion with the Burning Velocity Model
Transport Equations are solved for Mean Mixture Fraction, Mixture Fraction Variance and Reaction Progress
Idea of Flame Surface Density (FSD,
S) is introduced in this model to describe the intensity and location of the flame. ‘FSD’ is defined as the surface area of the turbulent flame per unit volume. A transport equation is used to solve for FSD

Method for modelling particle laden flows
A representative sample of particles is tracked through the continuous fluid
Ordinary differential equations (ODE) are integrated for position and velocity of each particle
The overall mass flow rate of the particle phase is shared amongst the representative particles, so each particle has its own mass
flow rate, and its own number rate

Simplifying Assumptions
Moving particle is treated as a moving mass point
• Abstraction from particle shape and volume
Details of the flow around the particle are neglected, e.g.
• Near particle flow field
• Vortex shedding
• Flow separation
• Boundary layers
Local properties of the dispersed phase are predicted from
spatial averaging over particle trajectories which are crossing a certain (control) volume
Not possible to predict the tracks of all physical particles
• This would require a particle flow DNS
• Using concept of representative particle trajectories
