Combustion Models for Industrial Applications

Objective

Combustion processes are an essential component of energy conversion and their accurate modeling is required if the objectives of reduction of fuel consumption and emissions are to be realized. Meeting these requirements will involve a substantial effort, in particular towards the development and availability of accurate and reliable simulation tools for reactive flows and more experimental data. In the COMBINA project, collaboration between a CFD software developing SME, which is coordinating this project, four major research groups on combustion and an SME specialized in experimental analysis of combustors is established. The research partners are originating from Belgium, Netherlands, France, Germany and Turkey. The partners will share and contribute with complementary expertise on the modeling of premixed, partially premixed and spray combustion including RANS and LES modeling and the generation of new experimental results for their validation. An industrial observer group (IOG) of representatives from the gas turbine manufacturing industry will advice the consortium on longer term industrial objectives and provide additional test cases. The current COMBINA project opens new pathways across the different sectors. The coordinating SME-1 is having the most recent numerical combustion models integrated in its software system towards the demands of end users in the manufacturing industry. SME-2 will benefit from intensive exchanges and transfers on experimental and numerical techniques and tools. The university partners will gain access to industrially relevant testcases from SME-2 and the IOG and to an industrial CFD software environment for testing advanced models on real-life applications that so far have only been applied with academic codes on simplified configurations. Actions towards networking and dissemination will involve training activities, as well as two workshops, on combustion modeling and on experimental techniques for combustors.
