Reaction Design to Introduce New Combustion Chemistry Simulation Software

In May, Reaction Design will introduce its newest combustion simulation software tool, CHEMKIN-PRO, for modeling and analyzing combustion efficiency in gasoline, diesel and emerging alternative fuel engines.

CHEMKIN-PRO makes use of an innovative high-speed solver engine that cuts the time required for solution convergence by five to 10 times versus previously available combustion simulation codes. These results are visible using a new, interactive visual display, known as the Reaction Path Analyzer, which also shows which reaction paths are dominant and helps designers determine opportunities for mechanism reduction.

Newly equipped with a particle-tracking module, CHEMKIN-PRO can be used to follow particle growth from inception to oxidation to predict number and size statistics. This new tool also features a user-programmable module called Uncertainty Analysis, which allows designers to evaluate how their inputs propagate through a simulation, helping define tolerances and safety margins and increasing the accuracy of the simulation.

The technology on which CHEMKIN-PRO is based was inspired by the accomplishments of the Model Fuels Consortium (MFC). (Earlier post.)
