Our existence depends on reactions. They are all around us. Driving to work, we convert the hydrocarbon fuel through a combustion reaction into water vapors and carbon dioxide. In the case where you have those fancy hybrids or electric cars, you still need that electrochemical reaction to take place to draw current and run the electric motor.
We breath air. The oxygen in air helps in burning the glucose in our body and provide us with energy. So, be it a very complicated engine or a biological system like humans, reactions are everywhere.
The current state of the human civilization would not have been possible without a good understanding of these reactions. Be it engineering or medicine, the understanding of these physio-chemical processes is the key to developing better automotive, aircraft engines, power plants, chemical/biological/nuclear reactors, electronics, materials, biomedical equipment and much more.
The use of computer programs has helped tremendously in acquiring this insight. The basis of these programs are the fundamental laws of nature and though these programs do not cover all the details in natural phenomenon, they do provide a tool for our analysis.
One such category of programs is computational fluid dynamics. ANSYS CFD tools provide the depth and breadth one needs to analyze these processes. In order to help our clients analyze such processes, we have prepared a series of webinars that deal with the modeling of reactions or reacting flows.
Through these webinars, ANSYS engineers will try to help you develop basic understanding of the process in an easy to understand way so that you get the maximum benefit and return for your time.
This webinar series, spanning over five sessions, provides an introduction to modeling reacting flows with ANSYS CFD. The aim is to equip a new user with sufficient knowledge to be able to successfully model reacting flows. Each session of this series is presented at different time slots of the day to suit your convenience based on your geographical location. Here’s a breakdown of the sessions:
- Part 1: Basic concepts and reacting flow models available in ANSYS CFD.
- Part 2: Fast chemistry modeling: Premixed, non-premixed and partially premixed models: concepts, applications and best practices. These models are widely used for combustion application like gas turbine and furnace among others.
- Part 3: Detailed chemistry modeling: concepts, applications and best practices. Advanced kinetics will address any reacting flow application which is kinetically controlled.
- Part 4: Modeling pollutants (soot, NOx) and surface chemistry that is used for applications like CVD and catalytic reactions.
- Part 5: Heterogeneous reaction modeling for solid and liquid fuels.
At the end of each session, experts in reacting flow modeling from ANSYS are available to discuss the usability of these models for your current engineering problems/challenges.
