STAR-CCM+ offers an extensive set of efficient reacting flow models with detailed models for gas-phase, surface and particle chemistry.
Combustion is a reacting flow where the constituents of a multi-component fluid react chemically with each other. Reacting flows are seen in a wide variety of industries and proper understanding of reacting flows is necessary for achieving the correct combustion and flame profile and temperature.

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.
