Numerical simulation of combusting flows in two dimensions
Abstract
Use is made of the twodimensional combustion (TDC) computer code to simulate various problems involving combustion of gaseous fuels. The code solves the full hydrodynamic conservation equations together with the equations for chemical species conservation and diffusion, heat conduction, and chemical kinetics. The problems addressed range in physical dimensions from laboratory apparatus (length scale of one meter) to unconfined combustion of large quantities of gaseous fuels (length scale of 1000 m). Through a number of such case studies, the flexibility as well as limitations of the method are examined. The usefulness of numerical simulations as a means of supplementing experimental data is demonstrated.
