Combustion Tools

ANSYS Chemkin Enterprise

ANSYS Chemkin Enterprise provides all the tools for fast, accurate combustion and reaction flow simulations bundled into a single license. The package includes 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 normally 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.

All the best combustion tools

This serious combustion bundle includes full versions of ANSYS Chemkin-Pro, Forte, Model Fuel Library and CFD PrepPost.

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.

ANSYS Forte accurately simulates internal combustion engine 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.

The Model Fuel Library 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.

Testing Times

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.

Applying Solution-Adaptive Mesh Refinement

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.
