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.

Common Dissemination Booster

26 November 2018

IMPROOF is working with the EC through the service “Common Dissemination Booster” (). It will help us to gather and exchange with two other EU SPIRE projects, VULKANO and DREAM. The three projects are working on similar problematics; they probably will have the same kind of stakeholders, which could be an...Read more
