STAR-CCM+ offers a comprehensive set of reacting flow models to properly simulate combustion in an efficient manner with detailed models for gas-phase, surface and particle chemistry.
STAR-CCM+ has a complete range of models compatible with RANS, DES and LES turbulence models to simulate a number of combustion scenarios such as:
Premixed, partially premixed and non-premixed models
State of the art coal and biomass combustion
Coupling to DARS-CFD for complex chemistry
Multiphase, transient instabilities and LES combustion
The types of combustion models available in STAR-CCM+ are:
Eddy break-up (EBU) model: Three variations of EBU models are present in STAR-CCM+ - standard, hybrid kinetics and combined time scale
Homogeneous Reactor Model: This model includes detailed chemistry descriptions and surface chemistry option for reactive surfaces
Coherent Flame Model (CFM): Simulation of premixed flames where fuel and oxidizer are perfectly mixed before entering the computational domain can be achieved by the CFM model
Presumed Probability Density Function (PPDF) model: This model uses a presumed probability distribution (PPDF) to represent turbulent fluctuations in the reacting flow using a few parametric variables
Thickness Flame Model (TFM): Primarily useful for Large Eddy Simulation (LES) combustion
In addition to the complete coverage of all combustion models, the ease-of-use for streamlined setup of complex reactions and handling of complex, un simplified combustor geometries makes STAR-CCM+ a preferred solution for Combustion applications.
