- CFD-Based Combustion Modeling

WithMichael A. Lorra, Shirley X. Chen

Computational uid dynamics (CFD) has become a widely accepted tool to help in the design and operation of equipment in various industries. It evolved from a tool to simulate isothermal ow distribution in simpler geometries, as for example ow distribution

in combustion equipment, see also Figure 9.1, to a generic tool that is theoretically capable of simulating complex ow phenomena with respect to geometry and physics.
