Computational fluid dynamics for combustion applications
Abstract
Computational fluid dynamics as applied to combustion problems is summarized. Mesh generation, algorithm classification, combustion models, turbulence models, and pollutant emissions are surveyed. Aspects relevant to the calculation of gas turbine combustors, and the impact of such methods on the combustion development process are outlined. It is shown that although there are still large areas of research to be undertaken, models are already proving valuable in addressing real industrial combustion topics. Further developments to substantially advance the usefulness and reduce the cost of such calculations are predicted.
