Using CHEMKIN-PRO Reaction Workbench for Jet Engine Soot Modeling

Announcements Reaction Design will host CHEMKIN-PRO Reaction Workbench - Jet Fuel Mechanism Reduction for Soot Simulations on May 29th.

In this seminar, we will demonstrate how to use Reaction Workbench to create a multi-component surrogate fuel blend for Jet-A liquid fuel that matches real fuel physical properties specifically for the prediction of sot emissions from multiple soot precursors.

Sponsor CFD Review

Master fuel components for the Jet-A mechanism will be assembled from Reaction Design's extensively validated Model Fuel Library. Two different approaches to soot simulation will be presented. One approach will track soot as a pseudo-gas phase that can be used to predict soot mass fraction based on typical gas turbine operating conditions. The other approach will incorporate multi-step soot surface chemistry that can be used to predict soot particle size distribution when applied in tools such as CHEMKIN-PRO and ENERGICO.

Who should attend

  • Aviation Gas Turbine Combustor Designers
  • Burner and Boiler Designers
  • Fuel Kineticists
  • Low Emissions Technology Designers
  • Project Managers

About the presenters
Dr. Chitral Naik is the Chemical Kinetics Lead at Reaction Design and is a key contributor to the mechanisms developed and validated in the Model Fuel Library. Dr. Naik earned his Ph.D. from the Colorado School of Mines where he developed detailed models for ethane and propane with emphasis on pressure dependent reactions. Dr. Naik also worked with Dr. Bill Pitz at Lawrence Livermore Laboratories where he published key work on multi-component gasoline mechanism.

Scott Drennan earned his Mechanical Engineering Degree from University of California, Irvine. Scott joined Reaction Design in 2007 as Director of Applications Engineering and Services. Prior to Reaction Design he was with EPRI, where he was Product Line Leader for Turbines & Plant Optimization and Manager of Combustion and Emissions Services. Prior to EPRI he spent seven years with COEN, Inc., and conducted CFD analyses at Allison Gas Turbines.
