Reacting Flow Applications in STAR-CCM+

We have been expanding our application coverage for reacting flows that require coupling of different processes with a wide-range of length and time scales. We capture these interactions by using a combination of online as well as offline computations that enables us to perform advanced reacting flow calculations incorporating finite-rate chemistry while keeping the computational time manageable. Our models have been extended to work in multi-phase as well as with segregated and coupled flow solvers.

Examples from chemical process and combustion applications will be shown that will include surface reactions, multi-phase reacting flows and emissions modeling. Flexibility is provided as the approach allows for the users to include their own flavor of different models using field functions and passive scalars. Different ways of using these features will also be discussed.
