CFD software capable of simulating soot mass and particle sizes

The CFD code FIRE® is a multi purpose simulation software which can be used for different kind of applications. For the simulation of engines FIRE® provides special modules for the handling of the mesh movement as well as a number of mathematical models for the treatment of effects as fuel injection or combustion. The solution algorithm is based on the well-known SIMPLE (Semi IMplicit Pressure Linked Equations) procedure. The code can handle computational cells with an arbitrary topology. Within the actual version of the program new sub-models from the ongoing project have been implemented. These sub-models make it possible to simulate the soot mass on a higher level of accuracy then it has been done up to now.
