Improving CFD modelling of gas turbine combustors with Ansaldo Energia

Ansaldo Energia is a leading company in the field of thermoelectric power plants production and maintenance. 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. 

Amongst others, three test cases from literature are under investigation:

  • An academic premixed flame test case
  • An academic non-premixed flame test case
  • A semi-academic model gas turbine combustor

The image below illustrates the precessing vortex core (PVC) from the model gas turbine combustor cold flow simulations, captured with a URANS methodology.
