High-temperature processes involving combustion and reacting flows are commonly encountered in the glass, steel, cement, metallurgy, refining and petro/chemical industries. Achieving these goals requires innovating current designs of processes and equipment such as:

  • Gas and coal burners
  • Glass and steel treatment furnaces
  • Process and crude heaters
  • Reformers
  • Dryers and kilns, etc.

Engineers increasingly rely on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and reaction kinetic simulations of combustion processes to use methodical approaches in designing such systems. With increasing energy efficiency, reducing environment impact, enabling fuel flexibility and improving system reliability and throughput being top industry trends, implementation enables engineers to realize a positive impact on business.

The successful use of simulation is achieved by lowering the cost of iterating between trials and prototypes. Recent advances in the CAD maneuverability, reaction modeling approaches and optimization algorithms allow for rigorous design space exploration.

In this webinar, we will look at some examples of how simulation (CFD simulation and design space exploration) is used to achieve business benefits through technical problem solving and innovation. A technical expert will demonstrate the process of setting up such a model.
