A gas radiation property model applicable to general combustion CFD and its demonstration in oxy-fuel combustion simulation

Publikation: Forskning - peer reviewKonferenceartikel i tidsskrift

Abstrakt

As a good compromise between computational efficiency and accuracy, the weighted-sum-of-gray-gases model (WSGGM) is often used in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling of combustion processes for evaluating gas radiative properties. However, the WSGGMs still have practical limitations (e.g., difficult to naturally accommodate different combustion environments or accurately address species variations in a flame or properly account for the impacts of participating species other than H2O and CO2) fostering different WSGGMs. In this paper, a gas radiation model, computationally efficient and practically accurate and applicable to general combustion CFD, is presented, programmed and verified. The model is implemented in CFD simulation of a 0.8 MW oxy-fuel furnace, via which the applicability and usefulness of the model in combustion CFD is demonstrated. On the contrary, the usefulness of the WSGGMs in oxy-fuel combustion CFD is found to be compromised, mainly because that the important impacts of the high levels of CO under oxy-fuel combustion cannot be accounted for in the current framework of the WSGGMs.
