## The assumption for Combustion Chamber CFD Simulation

There are several assumptions to solve the Combustion Chamber CFD Simulation:

- The simulation is transient
- The flow is Incompressible; hence, the solution is pressure-based.
- We consider the effect of Earth’s gravity on problem-solving.

## Combustion Chamber CFD Simulation Procedure

### Step 1: Geometry

The geometry of the present model is 3-D and Design Modeler software designs it. Inside the combustion chamber, there are three main parts, including the air inlet pipe, the burner section, and the outlet pipe. Inside the chamber, there is a thin wall with several cavities of varying dimensions. The primary small cavities for cooling the chamber wall by layering flow and the next big ones are to keep the flame in the middle of the chamber.

### Step 2: Mesh

ANSYS Meshing software performs the meshing of the present model. The mesh type is unstructured. We use a triangular grid and the element number is 694928.

### Step 3: Set-Up

We apply the Standard Wall Function and K-epsilon RNG model for the turbulence equation, since the flow inside the combustion chamber is relatively complex and the simulation is steady. We use the species Transport model and the species are O_{2}, CO, CO_{2}, CH_{4}, N_{2}, H_{2}O (vapor) for this simulation.

in this case, there are two steps for the reaction of methane burning with oxygen, with six species involved in the reaction, namely: methane, Oxygen, nitrogen, water vapor, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide. The air mass flow inlet is 0.02 kg.s^{-1 } and inlet air temperature is equal to 300 k. Mass fractions are .23 and .77 for oxygen and nitrogen, respectively. The fuel is methane and its inlet temperature is 300 k, also the flow rate is 0.0006 m.s^{-1}. Ultimately, the walls are insulated and the solver method is coupled.

All files, including Geometry, Mesh, Case & Data, are available in Simulation File. By the way, Training File presents how to solve the problem and extract all desired results.
