Title: A validation process for multi-phase reacting flow CFD code

Abstract

Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) code calculates flow properties for the analysis of a flow system. Flow properties are computed based on conservation principles and various phenomenological models. The accuracy of the computed flow properties highly depends on the validity of the models and the degree of numerical convergence. Validation of a CFD code is essential for application of an engineering system. Multiphase reacting flows are common in industrial applications and few CFD code are available. A CFD code was developed for the simulation of multiphase reacting flows. A validation process was also developed for such a CFD code. The validation was performed for several cases. Examples of industrial devices which are multiphase reacting flow systems include catalytic cracking reactors, glass melting furnaces, coal-fired combustors, and diesel engines.
