CONVERGE features a variety of tools to perform simplified kinetics calculations and to manipulate and evaluate chemical kinetic mechanisms. These chemistry tools include zero- and one-dimensional calculators for estimating ignition delay and laminar flamespeed; table generation tools for the Flamelet Generated Manifold (FGM) model, Tabulated Laminar Flamespeed (TLF), and Tabulated Kinetics of Ignition (TKI); mechanism merge and reduction tool for combining and decreasing the size of mechanisms; a mechanism tuning tool to optimize reaction mechanisms; and a pathway flux analysis tool to visualize reaction pathways. Additionally CONVERGE Studio offers a surrogate blender tool for multi-component fuels. This workshop will discuss how to set up these tools in CONVERGE Studio and present strategies for effectively using them with CFD simulations.
*This lecture includes hands-on CONVERGE Studio practice.
