Combustion includes two processes — thermal and chemical — in which a hydrocarbon fuel reacts with an oxidant to form products, accompanied by the release of energy in the form of heat. It is an integral part of various engineering applications like internal combustion engines, aircraft engines, rocket engines, furnaces, and power station combustors.Combustion simulation is used broadly during the design, analysis, and performance stages of the above-mentioned applications. This SimCafe Fluids Course was developed by Dr. Rajesh Bhaskaran, Swanson Director of Engineering Simulation at Cornell University in partnership with Ansys. It serves as an e-learning resource to integrate industry-standard simulation tools into courses and provides a resource for supplementary learning outside the classroom. In this tutorial, we will learn to model partially premixed combustion by following the end-to-end workflow in Ansys Workbench.
