ADAPT targets combustion applications in which disparate scales are involved or finite rate chemistry effects are critical.  This modeling tool has been developed to specifically include capabilities that account for the physical and chemical mechanisms controlling the combustion process in modern furnaces and boilers equipped with low NOx combustion equipment.


ADAPT emphasizes improvements in:

  • Adaptive mesh refinement to resolve a wide range of geometry details including highly complex staged burner geometries
  • Robust turbulent mixing submodel to capture fuel/air/flue gas mixing effects
  • Turbulence-chemistry coupling
  • Finite-rate chemical kinetics
  • Reduced mechanisms
  • Turbulent mixing parameters
  • Spectral line weighted gas radiative heat transfer submodels for accurate heat flux predictions
  • Computational efficiency
