Abstract


Abstract: In this paper,  a numerical investigation of the of methane air mixture combustion  by using the ansys flut in its version 16.0 is presented . The aim objective is to predicte the NOx emissions  in  the combustion of a swirling turbulent flame . In this study various parameters like proprieties of turbulent swirling flame and the status of the research on NOX formation /reduction  are discussed. the  combustion model used is  the PDF Flamelet Model for non premixed gas combustion. The obtained results of this work will help in finding out the geometry of the combustion chamber which will lead to less emission of NOx .
