Large-Eddy-Simulation of the flame and flow in a steam-cracking furnace


In this work thanks to an original multi-scale approach, a turbulent diffusion flame of a 15m-high steam cracking furnace has been simulated for the first time with LES.

The code AVBP, a compressible explicit LES solver was used with analytically reduced chemistry in order to accurately predict the flame structure, its dynamics, the plume as well as the NOX and CO emissions at the furnace exit.
