Development of combustion chamber of a reference calorimeter with numerical analysis
The present work focuses on the numerical modeling of two combustion chambers to be used inside an isoperibolic calorimeter to measure the Superior Calorific Value (SCV) from natural gas. This work shows performance of both chambers working under isoperibolic principle, through simulations based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The aim of the work is expose the performance of chamber combustion published in the literature versus another one proposed in this work, and show how was improved the performance of the chamber which proposed in this work by changing the geometry. And it is checked by analyzing temperature of burned gases at exit of combustion chamber.
