PyroSim / Using Burner and Reaction to simulate burning of methane
« on: March 06, 2012, 01:32:31 am »

I'm using PyroSim to model the flaring of natural gas which occurs onboard FPSOs. (

1. I've modelled a fire on top of the flare structure. I highlighted the top surface, then changed it's property to 'Fire', a surface I created using Burner. (my burner uses a mass loss rate equal to the flow rate of natural gas through pipes during the flaring process)

2. I've also added a methane reaction from the library. I understand this will allow my burner to behave as if methane is being burnt.

Am I on the right track here? Can I say that this is a simulation of methane being burnt at a rate of (mass loss rate)?

Looking forward to hearing your take on this. Thanks.
