The current project simulates combustion in a gas flare system using ANSYS Fluent software. We perform this CFD project and investigate it by CFD analysis.

The present model is designed in three dimensions using Design Modeler software. Due to the model’s symmetrical structure and to reduce the computational cost, only a 120-degree segment of the geometry is modeled.

The flare model has a cylindrical structure located inside a cylindrical computing space. Different sections, such as steam, gas flow, and pilot, are defined at the tip of the flare.

The meshing of the model has been done using ANSYS Meshing software. The element number is 1043138.

Flare Methodology

The flare system, also known as a gas flare, is a combustion device used in industrial units such as oil and gas refineries and the production of oil and gas wells, especially on offshore platforms. The Species Transport model has been used to carry out this project.

The transition species’ defined material is an n-butane-air mixture consisting of 9 gaseous species, including C4H10, O2, CO2, H2O, H2, CH4, C2H6, C3H8, and N2.

The volumetric model is also activated to activate chemical reactions and, consequently, the combustion process. This burning process consists of five different chemical reactions in the following form.


At the tip of the flare, a gas flow with a flow rate of 0.09259 kg/s enters the environment in the form of a combination of hydrocarbons. At the same time, a methane flow from the pilot flame and a steam flow from the steam inlet boundary, both at velocities of 2.479 m/s, enter the domain to ignite the mixture.

Also, the standard k-epsilon model can solve the turbulent fluid equations and the energy equation, which is used to calculate the temperature change within the combustion chamber.

Flare Conclusion

At the end of the solution process, three-dimensional contours related to the velocity and mass fraction of each gas species modeled in this simulation are obtained.

For example, by examining the three-dimensional contour of carbon dioxide gas, it can be well understood that the chemical reaction of combustion and carbon dioxide gas production is performed.

Also, as can be seen, the mass fraction of species considered in the fuel mixture decreases as we get away from the fuel inlet boundary. In contrast, the mass fractions of chemical species of reaction products increase along this way.

    This project surely enhanced my CFD skills, particularly in modelling combustion processes. The detailed explanation of chemical reactions was very helpful. Is there any section within the training that glosses over possible optimization of the flare system to reduce pollutant outputs?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Thank you for your positive feedback! Yes, within the training material, there is a section dedicated to discussing optimization techniques for flare systems that aim to enhance the efficiency of combustion, thereby reducing the emission of pollutants. This includes adjustments to the combustion process and design modifications to promote complete combustion and minimize the release of harmful gases.

    How does the flare system work in this CFD simulation?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The flare system in this CFD simulation works by burning off the unwanted gases during industrial processes. It ensures that these gases are safely disposed of, reducing the risk of explosion and minimizing the environmental impact.

    The simulation of the combustion process in a gas flare system seems very comprehensive. What is the model’s behavior at different operational scenarios, like variable fuel compositions or flow rates? Are there specific case studies included that explor how the system would respond to those changes?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The training includes review and analysis of the combustion process under the current operating conditions provided in the project description. Additional scenarios with variable fuel compositions or flow rates are typically explored in more advanced or separate case studies. Users interested in such analyses can perform their custom simulations varying the parameters within ANSYS Fluent using the provided model as a basis.

    The training details are very thorough, but I was wondering if the simulation also accounts for environmental factors like wind, which might affect the flare’s behavior?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In this particular simulation, environmental factors such as wind may not be explicitly modeled. However, it is possible to include wind and other environmental effects in flare simulations by defining additional boundary conditions and carrying out a more comprehensive analysis. For specific design needs, incorporating these extra variables could provide more realistic results concerning the flare’s performance under varying environmental conditions.
