Turning up the heat: ensuring efficiency in high temperature processes

Humans have used fire for thousands of years. From cooking meat to make it easier to eat and digest, to firing pottery to make watertight containers, to managing grass or moorlands through controlled burning, fire has been a vital tool for many aspects of human existence. These days, combustion is used in many industrial processes. These may be less visible to the general public, but are essential to produce materials and products used by everyone on a daily basis. Coal burners, dryers and kilns, and steel furnaces are just some of the areas where high temperature processes and combustion are used.

Today, process engineers must ensure these high temperature processes are as efficient as possible: inefficient processes lead to costly and excessive energy consumption, with the potential of excess emissions and non-optimal product yields. The use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to virtually investigate high temperature processes is now an established design tool in many industries, including the process industry, but are you using it to its full potential?

 

This on-demand webinar takes a look at recent advances in simulation capabilities in Simcenter STAR-CCM+, which make simulation and optimization of combustion processes even easier. Our technical experts will cover:

  • Recent advances in CAD maneuverability for geometry setup
  • Different reaction modeling approaches available in Simcenter STAR-CCM+
  • Combining CFD and design space optimization for intelligent geometry optimization
