Complex computations are done quickly and accurately, allowing you to perform insightful combustion and emissions analysis.

Understanding and predicting the effects of chemistry in a system are key to developing competitive products in transportation, energy, and materials processing applications. As designers of gas turbines, boilers and piston engines strive to meet low-emissions regulations with ever widening fuel flexibility requirements, they must also maintain, or even improve, their system’s performance. Similarly, designing high-throughput materials and chemical processes with high yield and quality must be done with minimal byproduct or waste.

Relying on testing alone for accurate performance validation is prohibitive, given today’s complex designs and shortened design cycles. Effective simulation of the underlying detailed chemistry is often critical for cost-effective design of systems with reduced pollutant emissions or undesired byproducts. Ansys Chemkin-Pro provides tools that enable these issues to be addressed at the fundamental level.
