Using Detailed Chemistry in ANSYS Chemkin-Pro for More Accurate Combustion and Reacting Flow Simulations - Presentation

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can help designers achieve higher performance and lower emissions for combustion and reacting flow systems — without costly physical prototyping. But combustion CFD can only be of value if the simulations predict real-life behaviors. To predict actual performance and pollutant emissions, simulations must accurately account for the chemical kinetics of the combustion process. By using fuel models based on detailed chemistry, designers can greatly increase the predictive capability of combustion simulations and, as a result, more quickly and effectively meet strict regulatory guidelines.
