Driving innovation with gas & liquid-fuel combustors through CFD and design exploration
Thursday, May 18, 2017

Until recently, the ability to accurately characterize combustion of gas-fuels (usually methane) and liquid-fuels required the use of expensive testing and validation. The development of computational methods over the last 20 years has opened the doors to new methods to help engineers discover better combustor designs faster by enabling the accurate assessment of such important combustor performance characteristics as:

  • Fuel/air mixing
  • The ability to use different fuels in the same combustor (or with only slight modifications)
  • Predictions of NOx and CO emissions and soot formation, including from use of different equivalence ratios – to help keep parts-per-million (ppm) levels below government-mandated thresholds
  • Effective management of cooling air; accurate temperature predictions especially throughout solid liner components to minimize thermal stress and to maximize life, but also to maximize temperature uniformity at the outlet

In this On-Demand webinar, you will learn how innovative organizations are increasing their use of combustion simulation for gases and liquids in their design process to help improve modern combustor designs.
