ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use and limitations of the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) used in automated 3-dimensional (3-D) simulation models for predicting emissions, ignition and lean blow-out (LBO). CFD simulations may resolve NOx issues but can only handle simple representations, thereby risking loss of important information on pollutant species and combustion stability. The author also explains the value of converting combustor geometry into an equivalent reactor network (ERN) using available packages such as Energico.
