CONVERGE includes a variety of tools to perform simplified kinetics calculations and to manipulate and evaluate chemical kinetic mechanisms. Zero-dimensional and one-dimensional calculators enable estimating the ignition delay and the flame speed of mixtures using specified kinetic mechanisms. The mechanism merge and reduction tools allow combining and decreasing the size of mechanisms to facilitate CFD chemistry calculations. This workshop will discuss the setup of these tools in CONVERGE Studio and strategies for effectively using them with CFD simulations. Participants will practice using the setup menus for the various modules.
*This lecture includes hands-on CONVERGE Studio practice.
