Dacolt provides hands-on training courses for turbulent combustion modelling for industrial applications.


Modeling Combustion and Reacting Flows - a joint Ansys & Dacolt seminar.

Reacting and combustion systems generate heat as an essential part of many processes. Improving heat generation operations along with related emissions control and performance efficiency are continual challenges to combustion engineers. Computational Fluid Dynamics solutions are used across a wide range of applications, from gas turbines to flares and coal combustion to flameless combustion and low-Nox burners to oxy-fuel combustors, gasifiers and biomass furnaces.


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.


Diesel engine simulations are realised using the Dacolt PSR+PDF combustion model in ANSYS® FLUENT®, with Tabkin® for the look-up tables with detailed chemistry. The Dacolt PSR+PDF model is able to reproduce the key physics like the ignition and premixed burn and yields good agreement with the measured pressure trace.


FPT Industrial has started an Advanced Engineering project to develop a Next Generation Combustion modelling CFD tool, together with the University Politecnico di Milano, in charge of the CFD code, Dacolt, in charge of the implementation of advanced combustion models in this code and the Eindhoven University of Technology, in charge of the validation measurements.


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.
