Combustion and Deposition Analysis

Exploit innovative approaches for combustion system improvement by multi-physical simulation technology.

Solid biofuel, waste or sewage sludge incineration is a challenge in many regards. Amongst others, emission abatement as well deposit formation belong to the main issues of related incinerators. Although it is common that these phenomena are subjected to the fuel and the combustion process, most of the underlying processes are hardly accessible during system operation. With our portfolio of simulation services based on CFD and CFD-DEM coupling, we provide the best-suited approach for your project requirements and enable insight into processes, unattainable apart from that. Gain detailed knowledge and identify innovative optimization potential using our CFD expertise.

Key Benefits for Your Project

  • Long-term experiences in combustion and particle science
  • Comprehensive insights into hardly accessible processes
  • A variety of simulation services well-suited for each project situation
  • In-house particle model for solid fuel thermal conversion

Simulation Techniques

As an experienced service company in the field of CFD simulation we offer a broad range of simulation concepts in order to meet our customers’ requirements. Short-term analysis of packed bed combustion can be carried out with state-of-the-art packed bed models and steady state CFD simulation of the freeboard and heat exchanger sections.

For deeper insights we also provide our partners the highest level of detail for packed and fluidized beds on the basis of discrete particle methods.

Discrete Particle Approach (CFD and DEM)

Discrete particle methods allow for consideration of movement and conversion of individual fuel particles. In our unique simulation concept this is achieved by coupling of CFD simulation, Discrete Element Method (DEM) and a particle model for thermally thick fuel particles. The latter comprises drying, pyrolysis and char burnout as the main steps of the thermal conversion.

A key benefit of our procedure lies in its ability to represent fuel heterogeneities.
