An Open-Source, Extensible Software Suite for CVD Process Simulation

  title={An Open-Source, Extensible Software Suite for CVD Process Simulation},
  author={David G. Goodwin},
Chemical vapor deposition processes involve a complex interplay of chemistry and transport, both in the vapor and on the surface. Arriving at a mechanistic understanding usually requires both experimental process diagnostics and numerical simulation. Just as appropriate tools (gas chromatographs, lasers, spectrometers) are required for diagnostics, suitable numerical tools are needed for simulation, including ones to compute chemical equilibrium, simulate stirred reactors or reacting flow…

A computational framework for predicting laminar reactive flows with soot formation

Numerical modeling is an attractive option for cost-effective development of new high-efficiency, soot-free combustion devices. However, the inherent complexities of hydrocarbon combustion require

Experiments and Modeling of Impinging Jets and Premixed Hydrocarbon Stagnation Flames

To model the combustion of long-chain hydrocarbon fuels, an accurate kinetics mechanism must first be developed for the oxidation of small hydrocarbons, such as methane, ethane, and ethylene. Even

Multi-scale analyses of reactive flow in porous media

In this thesis, chemically reacting flows in porous media have been studied. Solar steam reforming of hydrocarbons in catalytic reticulate porous ceramics (RPCs) is used as the model process. Porous

Examples of the Potential of DNS for the Understanding of Reactive Multiphase Flows

The objective of this article is to point out the ability of the multiphase flow DNS (Direct Numerical Simulation) to help to understand basic physics and to interpret some experimental observations.

Bifurcation Analysis of Perfectly Stirred Reactors with Large Reaction Mechanisms

This work introduces a suitable algorithm to investigate ignition, extinction and linear stability of the air-fuel mixtures in a Perfectly Stirred Reactor (PSR) based on the well-known Keller pseudo-arclength continuation method in order to compute steady state solution curves.

Providing an Entry Length in Heterogeneous Catalytic Reactors with Fast Diffusion

This work investigates the effects of boundary conditions on the species profiles in heterogeneous catalysis, with low Peclet systems. Hydrogen combustion in Helium was chosen because of the high

2-D Transient Numerical Code for Hybrid Rocket Simulations with Detailed Chemistry

Hybrid rocket technology is known since the 30's and it is covered by a large number of experimental, fundamental and applied research works. It still suffers from a lack of chemical description and

An Investigation of Equilibrium Iron Thermochemistry in Flames

The thermochemistry of iron in flames has been investigated theoretically using the Cantera software package. The focus was placed on the iron intermediates as well as the conditions under which
