Introduction to Ansys Chemkin-Pro

Course Overview

Understanding and predicting the effects of chemistry in a system are key to developing competitive products in transportation, energy, and materials processing applications. As designers of gas turbines, boilers and piston engines strive to meet low-emissions regulations with ever widening fuel flexibility requirements, they must also maintain, or even improve, their system's performance. Similarly, designing high-throughput materials and chemical processes with high yield and quality must be done with minimal byproduct or waste. Relying on testing alone for accurate performance validation is prohibitive, given today's complex designs and shortened design cycles. Effective simulation of the underlying detailed chemistry is often critical for cost-effective design of systems with reduced pollutant emissions or undesired byproducts.  Ansys Chemkin-Pro provides tools that enable these issues to be addressed at the fundamental level.  

This course will help you learn to use Ansys Chemkin-Pro to select appropriate kinetics models for your application, set up and perform simulations of various reactor types with kinetics models, understand the important reactions in a process and assure the accuracy of the chemistry model used in your CFD.

 

Prerequisites

  • A technical education and background are recommended, but an engineering or chemistry degree is not required.
  • Understanding of the combustion kinetics modeling is recommended.

Target Audience:

Combustion engineers, process engineers and gas turbine engineers.

Teaching Method:

Slide deck, lectures, and computer practical sessions to validate knowledge
