Adiabatic flame temperature calculation using Python and Cantera

In this project Adiabatic Flame Temperature(AFT) calculation will be performed using coding language Python and in-build Suite of Cantera. Cantera is an open-source suite of tools for problems involving chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, and transport processes. So, the comparative analysis will be performed to compare the factors like time requirement, accuracy etc. The effect of number of carbon atoms on Adiabatic Flame Temperature will also be discussed.

Adiabatic flame temperature calculation using python and cantera

In this project, we are writing a code to calculate the Adiabatic Flame Temperature of the Methane Flame. The calculation will not be performed without understanding the complex theory of flame dynamics and chemical kinetics. There are multiple reactions taking place inside the flame to increase the temperature of the flame. You will going to learn two approaches to calculate the Adiabatic Flame Temperature(AFT). In first approach, we will be setting up the energy balance to calculate the AFT using constant volume and constant pressure approach. The comparison between these two approach will also be made to understand their applicability in different applications. For energy balance, the enthalpies will be calculated using NASA polynomials and  coefficients for solving enthalpies will be taken from GRI3.0 mechanism which is available on University of Berkeley Open source combustion library. The another approach for solving AFT is by using Cantera suite which can used with Python directly. The comparative analysis will also be performed to find which approach stands out or atleast its suitability in different applications.  

  • Set the input parameters required for python and Cantera.
  • Calculate required parameters by using Open Source libraries.
  • Post processing the results in Python.
  • Perform comparative analysis by using necessary plots.
