Dacolt has worked with Laborelec, the GDF-Suez competence centre in electrical power technology, to realize CFD simulations for the Paris City Heating Company CPCU for supporting decision making on replacing Heavy Fuel Oil burners with Biodiesel.
A model gas turbine combustor is sucessfullly simulated with the Flamelet Generated Manifold combustion model. Advanced turbulence modelling is required to capture the PVC flow structure.
ATAG Verwarming B.V. provides high quality condensing boilers for domestic heating applications. For further insight in the heat exchanger operation, ATAG is working together with Dacolt on CFD analyses.
Ansaldo Energia works together with Dacolt on investigating various combustion models in ANSYS® FLUENT®, with an ultimate goal to improve the prediction of NOx emissions.
Dacolt has performed a series of simulations to investigate gas composition effects on flame length in an industrial furnace. The simulations have been realized for ArcelorMittal Gent, in collaboration with Actiflow.
The auto-ignition, development and stabilization of a lifted n-heptane spray flame are successfully simulated with the Dacolt PSR+PDF combusion model, for a range of ambient oxygen concentrations.
