In many situations, it is useful to create multiple sequences of animations, and append them end-to-end to create a final long animation. Many of CPFD Software’s marketing animations were created…
This study by researchers from the Shanghai Engineering Research Center of Coal Gasification investigated the applicability of the CPFD) numerical scheme for simulating flows in a 3-D hopper.
Bigda, from the Institute for Chemical Processing of Coal (IChPW), Poland, presents CPFD numerical studies of the hydrodynamics of gas-solid flow and the drying process using Barracuda Virtual Reactor.
In this paper a CPFD model for dry flue gas desulfurization (DFGD) systems was developed, validated against lab-scale data, and applied to an industrial-scale unit.
In this paper presented at CFB-11, a team from Babcok & Wilcox Power Generation Group report on Barracuda simulations of a large capacity, pantleg CFB boiler.
Update – March 4, 2015: Barracuda VR 16.0.5 has been replaced by Barracuda VR 16.0.6 on September 30, 2014, and is no longer available for download. If you still require…
This video shows Barracuda Virtual Reactor® simulations results on the left, compared with large-scale test data from Particulate Solid Research, Inc. (PSRI) on the right.
Barracuda VR 16.0.5 Issues affecting this version: KI-1: Particle Drag is not calculated for pure liquid particles when simulation has no solid materials KI-2: 2D data is missing output conversion…
To demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of Barracuda Virtual Reactor, a model of a pseudo-2D fluidized bed created using it is compared to a two-fluid model (TFM).
Gas streams from reactors such as gasifiers often have a need to ‘scrub out’ undesirable gas-phase components from the primary product gases. For a gasifier’s syngas this is always sulfur.
