Methanol Combustion Simulation via CFD

Ali Huseyin Abdulkarim [1]


Methanol combustion can take place in various mediums ranging from internal combustion engines to burners and such. Consequently combustion efficiency and the dimensional system characteristics vary from system to system. Recent researches are going on to identify these aforementioned characteristics. Present paper is a part of such effort. A combustion domain representing the geometrical parameters of a burner was modelled and governing equations for combustion process were selected in a commercial CFD solver. Results constitute base for future work focusing on a similar burner performance. Static pressure distribution, mesh structure, temperature distribution, turbulence intensity, density distribution and velocity vectors are presented in both 2D planes and 3D domain. Results indicate the importance of combustion volume entrance design. There are dead regions adjacent to the combustion volume entrance. It is proposed that a new entrance region should be designed.
