ANSYS combustion tools include detailed fuel models with broad and deep simulation software whose hallmark is accuracy and best-practice methodologies. These tools help you achieve your performance and fuel efficiency goals cost-effectively and without compromising time to solution. You can reduce chemistry analysis time by orders of magnitude, virtually eliminating the bottleneck that chemistry integration produces during the simulation process. Faster time to solution means you can spend more effort exploring design alternatives, conducting experiments, understanding where and why problems occur and explaining observations without sacrificing accuracy.
ANSYS Chemkin-Pro is the gold standard for modeling and simulating complex gas phase and surface chemistry reactions that are used for the conceptual development of combustion systems in cars, trucks, jet engines, boilers, chemical and materials processing equipment and refining applications. Chemkin-Pro’s wide array of accurate, fast and robust kinetic models make it the most trusted kinetic simulation tool for asking "what if" questions in the conceptual design phase. Engineers can quickly explore the impact of design variables on performance, pollutant emissions and flame extinction using large, accurate fuel models to obtain the results they need to make key product development decisions.
Forte accurately simulates IC engine combustion performance with nearly any fuel, helping engineers rapidly design cleaner burning, high-efficiency, fuel-flexible engines. Coupling Forte's robust, accurate combustion modeling capabilities with automated mesh generation enables you to quickly analyze designs without the mesh generation headache.
ANSYS Model Fuel Library
The Model Fuel Library (MFL) includes detailed and validated reaction mechanisms for over 65 fuel components that are relevant to combustion simulations in a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications. The fuel components can be used to represent gaseous or liquid fuel combustion for petroleum-derived or alternative fuels. Gaseous components include natural gas, synthetic gas, biofuels and blends. For liquid fuels, the fuel components can be used in formulating surrogates for a wide range of real-world fuels, including gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, alternative fuels, fuel blends and additives.
See how our customers are using our software:
A gas turbine manufacturer faced emissions standards that required drastic reduction in pollutants. Conventional CFD needed very long run times to model detailed combustion chemistry. Simplified chemistry was faster, but it couldn’t accurately predict emissions. Reduced order modeling accelerated the time to solution without compromising accuracy.View Case Study
Applying Solution-Adaptive Mesh Refinement in Engine Simulations
In this paper, learn how to implement and apply the solution-adaptive mesh refinement capability in ANSYS Forte CFD to engine simulations. First, the authors review the usage of solution-adaptive mesh (SAM) refinement in various engine simulations. Second, they explore how SAM Impacts the mesh sensitivity of the flame propagation model and spray model. From this they provide guidance for users to select cost effective refinement levels in their engine applications.
