Detailed chemical kinetics is an integral component for predictive simulation of turbulent flames and is important for reliable prediction of flames and emissions. Major challenges of incorporation of detailed chemistry in flame simulations are induced by the large number of chemical species and the wide range of timescales involved in detailed kinetics.

A new capability is developed that enables the modeling of certain logistics-fuel reformers. The system described in this paper considers a shell-and-tube configuration for which the catalytic reforming chemistry is confined within the tubes. The models are designed to accommodate detailed gas-phase and catalytic reaction kinetics, possibly including(More)

Reduced chemical kinetic mechanisms developed and tested using the CARM-PSE software have been implemented into a variety of CFD codes. When used in the commercial code Fluent, a CARM-PSE created reduced mechanism performs well for predicting the major species and temperature of the Sandia D flame. Predictions for radical and pollutant species are not as(More)
