Turbulent Combustion Modeling Featured on Ansys Guest Blog

CRAFT Tech was recently tasked by its customers to develop an LES turbulence — chemistry interaction subgrid model to capture local extinction and blow-out effects that satisfied the following requirements: the model should be portable to commercial CFD flow solvers, and the model should be tractable for routine application within a system design cycle environment. […]

Turbulent Combustion Modeling

Dr. William Calhoon from our CRAFT Tech office in Huntsville, AL has recently developed an advanced, computationally efficient turbulent combustion model for large-eddy simulation (LES) of aircraft and power system gas turbine combustors.  This new formulation is designed to capture local flame extinction and global flame blow-out effects, thereby enabling improved predictions of lean blow-out […]

Rarefied Flow Simulation With 6DOF Motion

CRAFT Tech has been involved in rarefied flow simulation for over a decade. Our most recent work has pushed the state-of-the art to include six degree-of-freedom (6DOF) motion. Utilizing our in-house Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) solver, we can now perform simulations of unsteady rarefied flow phenomena and their subsequent effect on objects. Rather than […]
