Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) when saw its development on the peak, was meant to merely validate simulations with the experimental results. But the recent trends have shown that confidence in CFD has grown and its use is on the rise to simulate physics problems which have very limited experimental data for its validation. Combustion is one such field where application of CFD and this recent trend has proved to be a boon.

Having the basic introduction to writing a UDF from the earlier article "Writing a UDF for CFD Modeling" wherein we saw using UDF for inserting custom boundary profiles, we shall now see another application of UDF with an example of boiling phenomenon. To get the most understanding from the current article the reader should be familiar with ANSYS Fluent software and basic UDF understanding. 

CD-adapco, the largest privately held CFD-focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software has joined hands with Centre for Computational Technologies (CCTech). CCTech is a leading global company in software product development and premium consultant services in the area of CAD, CFD and PLM. CD-adapco and CCTech are now global education partners for CFD training through LearnCAx, the online CAx education wing of CCTech.

Carbon Black (CB) is a material produced by the incomplete combustion of heavy petroleum products such as FCC (Fluid Catalytic Cracking) tar, coal tar, ethylene cracking tar, and a small amount of vegetable oil. It is a form of amorphous carbon that has a high surface area to volume ratio majorly used as a pigment and reinforcement in rubber and plastic products. CB is made in specially designed reactors operating at internal temperatures in the range of 2600 F to 3600 F.

Are you new to CAE? Have you heard the acronym CFD? Did you want to know more about CFD? Its use, process and how to do CFD? Being a CFD analyst did you ever want to try out different, more powerful and user friendly CFD software for your project, research or analysis? If these are some of the questions in your mind then getting introduced to STAR CCM+ is the Next Step in CFD for you!
