Tutorial: Coal Combustion with Eddy Break Up (EBU)Model
The purpose of this tutorial is to provide guidelines and recommendations for setting upand solving a coal combustion case with the Eddy Break Up (EBU) model.This tutorial demonstrates how to do the following:
Set up and solve a coal combustion case.
Use the Eddy Break Up (EBU) model.
Solve the case using appropriate solver settings.
Postprocess the resulting data.
You should be familiar with the
interface and have a good understanding of basicsetup and solution procedures. In this tutorial, you will use turbulence and combustionmodels, so you should have some experience with them. This tutorial will not cover themechanics of using these models. Instead, it will focus on the application of these modelsto coal combustion.If you have not used these models before, it would be helpful to ﬁrst refer to the
6.3 User’s Guide and the
6.3 Tutorial Guide.
A 3D cutaway of the furnace is shown in Figure1. Two annular inlets on the left-hand sideand a circular outlet on the right-hand side are visible. Only one quarter of this geometryis modeled due to symmetry. The inner annular inlet has inner and outer radii of 0.055 mand 0.067 m respectively. The outer annular inlet has inner and outer radii of 0.07 m and0.117 m respectively. The outlet radius is 0.425 m.Coal and carrier air enter the combustion chamber through the inner annular region. Hot,swirling, secondary air enters through the outer annular region. Combustion takes placeand the products exit at the pressure outlet.
