Computational analysis of Aluminum Combustion using steam as the oxidizer within a combustion chamber. Incorporating combustion equations, reaction equations, chamber heat transfer, and multi-phase hydrodynamics of chamber inlet to exit flow across. The chamber was gridded and then the equations incorporated in Fluent to determine issues such as slag build-up, location of fuel ignition, particle flow, stagnation zones, thermal analysis, and flow velocities. The model was exercised with homogeneous Aluminum particle sizes and then with a distribution of particle sizes.intensity must be solved over the whole domain, unlike conservation equations for mass, momentum, and energy, which can be solved for discretized volumes that ... One example of simplified case where an exact solution is known applies to one- dimensional problems or where uniform radiative properties of the medium and homogeneous boundary conditions are assumed (Hewitt, G.F. et al., 1998).
