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:
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.
Another recent addition lets you use co-simulation for reacting channels by coupling with DARS-CFD. With this approach, a 1D model approximation is used for the reacting flows and heat is transferred from the reacting channels to the flow volume. .
A new functional capability, implemented using the Method of Moments approach, is added to model polymerization processes. During polymerization, several different chemical reactions occur. With this feature, it is possible to model initiation, propagation, chain transfer, chain branching, scission and termination. It is also possible to model the chain transfer to polymer, to modifier or to solvent independently.
